Half set of Lowenfeld mosaics (later called the ‘Minor Box’) , containing 228 tiles in five different geometric shapes and six primary colours. Originally developed by Margaret Lowenfeld in the 1930s, this set, with wooden pieces in a hinged wooden case, dates from that very early period. These more portable versions of the mosaics, which contained half as many pieces as the standard set, were used as non-verbal tools by anthropologists in the field.
