This Antique Sewing Box is gorgeously veneered with beautiful quartered and book-matched panels of blonde Tortoiseshell, separated with fine Silver stringing. The top of the box features a small vacant initial plate and a petal-shaped escutcheon features on the front.
The interior is pristinely lined with crimson-red Silk paper. Inside features the box’s original contents – various Ivory Sewing Supplies which consist of five beautifully carved Ivory Thread Reels, a tape measure, two thimbles, a needle book, and a pincushion. There is also a removable tool pad that houses two prickers, a pair of scissors, and a penknife. Underneath is a small storage space. The front half of the box has a large storage area that houses more various sewing supplies.
This stunning box is not only complete with its original contents, but it is also complete with a tasseled key that works with an operational lock, meaning the box can freely be locked and unlocked.
The other box shown in the picture is not included in this sale. However, since they are from the same manufacturer, we feel they are complementary and complement one another perfectly. Click here to view the other.
