Dammit, eBay!


I didn’t need to see this: Winsor & Newton’s current limited edition teak oil paint box. Which is lovely.

Until you see Rosa Bonheur’s 19th C Winsor & Newton watercolor box.

Funny thing is, the modern box above is around £1,500. I found the exact same 1890 one as Rosa’s in an antique auction for around £500. The hitch? It was so pristine and beautiful, I could not possibly bear to use it!

My oil paints are currently in a cardboard box (I do have a nice japanned watercolor box, though!
