Antique Victorian Wood Voting Ballot Box

About

Victorian ballot box This Victorian ballot box is an excellent example of a mid-19th century Wooden ballot box with brass hardware. Ballots were paper in that era and a roll of paper in contained inside the box. There is a drawer in the bottom (a bell dings when the drawer is opened), and it is in great condition considering its age. The lock is a secure 2 lever Willen lock (key not included) which makes me believe the piece is English. Someone added a piece of Finply to the bottom for additional support. A prime example of how elections were handled in earlier times, it is truly a gem. Know of a politician who might appreciate a superb gift from political history.
