Depicted on this extremely rare and important bandbox...the engine received in 1830 by Eagle Engine Company 13 of New York City; this company was in existence at the time of the reorganization of the NY Fire department in 1783. "In 1830", writes Mr. Zophar Mills in Our Firefighters-"they had their new engine-the first one in the city that was silver plated, and probably the only one in this country whose brass work was silver plated. The engine was painted black, gold striped, highly polished, and the back had Jupiter hurling thunderbolts painted on it in the best style of art. She was the most elegant engine seen in those days, and all expense of decoration was paid for by the company and their friends." (Zophar Mills was unanimously elected a member of this company in 1832.)
The integrity of this box remains intact with only the typical vestiges of time evident; imperfections and soiling of lid with all else being generally good. Pasted inside the cover is the manufacturer's label, on which is recorded the owner's name-Elizabeth F. Gardner-Nantucket-North Shore; owners name again inscribed in ink on exterior of lid and base. (Height: 14 3/8-inches; width: 20.5-inches; depth: 16.25-inches.)
