Rectangular hinged decoupage box painted black and highlighted with numerous cut-out printed figures covered with varnish. The box was owned by Mrs. Dorothy Wise Smead of Deerfield and Springfield, MA, and Meriden, N.H., and was given to the museum by her daughter. Box is inscribed in graphite on the bottom of the box: "Nancy Clay/Box 1832 or 1892?" Nancy Clay could be Nancy M. Clay, daughter of cabinetmaker Daniel Clay and his wife Lucinda Smead Clay of Greenfield. She was born on July 30, 1820 and died January 29, 1883. The date "1832" could relate to the family's move to New York City when Daniel Clay left the cabinetmaking business and became a druggist.
