This is a very unusual round wallpaper box lined with Boston newspaper 1859 but I think the box is earlier. It has several layers of wallpaper and I think the interior and this layer of paper was put on at the same time, just before the Civil War. It has the original leather hinges that are still intact but someone felt the need to reinforce them. It newer ones could be taken off. It came right out of a house right here in my town. The box is 13 1/2" long by 8 1/2' back to front and 7 1/2" high. Circa 1820-1840
