Miniature Walnut Sewing Table with beautifully shaped Lyre harp legs with a small pincushion mounted in the centre of the leg support brace.

The top of the table is hinged and lifting it reveals a framed mirror on the underside. The interior features several small compartments with various beads, ribbons and sewing supplies including bone thread winders. The center has a padded tool set comprising a bone pricker, thimble, thread winders, needle case, Quill and a pair of working scissors. The attention to detail on these items is exquisite.

The dolls house sewing table was made in Waltershausen, Germany.

Provenance:

' Items from an extensive collection built up over the last 30 years by a serious collector of interesting and important boxes and other unusual sewing tools. This represents a lifelong interest in the subject, and includes many interesting pieces.'

Quotes from the lovely passionate collector.

Each item were all purchased because they spoke to me - an instant buzz - a connection somehow with the box - and then the joy of finding the small contents which bring the boxes back to life - I have loved and cherished each and every one.
