Started in 1810, C Roberson is still in the business of supplying artists. We found this beautiful japanned black lacquer box about twenty years ago at the Bermondsey Antique Market in London. It looks to be from the late 1800s or early 1900s. The box opens to form a palette for plein aire watercolor painting. Inside are twelve fenced compartments for watercolor cakes, three wells for wetting colors and generous palette area for blending. Underneath are a pair of fold-out rings for thumb and forefinger to hold it securely. The front cover bears the distinctive gold embossed company logo. The most recent artist to use this palette has penciled in the names of the twelve Windsor Newton colors installed. The half cakes appear to be lightly used. Condition is very good with minor abrasion to and loss of the black lacquer outside. There are paint stains inside consistent with use and there is some rust showing beneath the rolled edge of the base. Measures: 9″ x 6″ x 3/4 approx. Brushes are not included.
