Box of pigments and implements for painting on china. The name and logo of Reeves & Sons appears on the underside of the box lid, on the printed labels of each vial of pigment, and on the blank ceramic palette. Presumably, Reeves & Sons acted as distributor of the pigments produced by Hancock & Son, of Worcester, whose label appears on the vials and on the ceramic palette of pigment examples.
