Hello all,

I'm wondering if anyone has ever seen anything like these before? We found them clearing out my late-Grandfather's house. 

I believe they were made around the year 1801 and have found one example of them catalogued at the V&A Children's Museum in London.

I took them to a few antiques dealers and they said they were to specialist for them to even guess at the worth/demand etc.

The box is approx. 15 x 9cm.

Any suggestions on who might be interested in these would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

 Thank you for your reply! I'm finding out more and more about them. I'm now looking to find a specialist dealer who might be onterested in taking them.
