A wonderful early advertising button box.  Later Victorian, about 1860s to 1880s, the paper covered lithograph cardboard box once held fancy pearl shirt buttons.  Manufactured by C.V. Blunt, Birmingham.  It is a splendid box with printed graphics on the lid of a scene with buildings, people, horses and wagons.  Colors of the lid are sepia and black.  The remainder of the box paper is printed in a pink background with figures, birds, and scrolls.  Looks to be Old Glory flying from one of the buildings.  Although can't be sure.  

Condition of the box is remarkable.  Except for a tiny scuff of paper at edges and some light soiling, the box is in nice condition. 

Size is 7-1/2" long x 2" wide x 1-1/4" in height.

Although no original buttons, the box is filled with a nice assortment of pearl buttons from the early 1900's
