Staw Marquetry Boxes

Straw Box

The battle of Waterloo was fought 200 years ago, on 18th June 1815.  This battle finally ended the series of wars that had plagued Europe for almost 25 years. France had suffered defeat and Napoleon would abdicate within the week.

This box was made by a French prisoner-of-war detained in Chesterfield during the Napoleonic Wars.
