Lettering on Tunbridge ware was originated by Henry Hollamb. Boyce. Brown & Kemp were also known for producing the lettering in relatively large quantities. This box. however. represents something or a rareity in that. given the presence of green oak in the design. it was almost certainly made by Thomas Barton. probably under his own steam as an independant manufacturer. although possibly under Edmund Nye.
