    A pair of Red Leather Deed Boxes dating to C1750, decorated with gilded steel studs, and reinforced with brass plates at the top corners, the tops with Chippendale brass handles and the front with Chippendale key hole escutcheons. The initials D.G.* are embedded with brass pins into the lids. The interiors retain the original marbled paper linings, and the locks of both boxes are in working order with keys (probably original)

     
    Accompanying the boxes is a gold rimmed spyglass, reportedly the property of the original owner.
     

    *Daniel Giles (b.1725-d. 1800) was Governor of the Bank of England from 1795 to 1797. He had been Deputy Governor from 1793 to 1795. He replaced Godfrey Thornton as Governor and was succeeded by Thomas Raikes. In 1796 he bought the Youngsbury estate in Standon, Hertfordshire which had been improved by David Barclay of Youngsbury, Quaker banker and abolitionist, who commissioned Capability Brown to landscape its park. Giles married Elizabeth Messman. Daniel Giles (1761–1831) the barrister and Member of Parliament was their son.
