This plain wooden box could make upwards of £2000 at auction-beacuse of its connection with the plague. 

Auctioneers believe that the 17th century box could be connected with Nathaniel Hodges who was an English physician that was known for his work during the great plague and for writing Loimologia, an historical account of the plague in London. 

The box will auction with Halls as part of their fine furniture, European ceramics and works of art sale on April 15.
