Description

Penwork Sewing Box with wonderful floral decoration on all sides with fabulous colour and detail. Standing on four elaborate brass feet with a brass loop carry handle on either side.

Opening the penwork sewing box reveals a vibrant pink paper lined interior. The underside of the lid is decorated with naive silhouettes.
The splendid antique sewing box features a large removable tray which has several compartments containing Ivory thread spools, winders and two with velvet padded lids and a removable tool pad complete with cut steel scissors, file, needles and pricker.

Lifting out this tray reveals a large storage space underneath.

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.

This sewing box comes with a working lock and tasselled key and has its original untouched finish and great patination.
