Covered with paper decorated with colorful parrots, this box belonged to Deerfield resident, Anna (Williams) Howard (1799-1822). It is a storage box for small possessions as well as for hats and bonnets. Sometimes the boxes were covered with leftover wallpaper and sometimes the paper was made especially for the boxes.
