The first I have ever seen,absolutely wonderful child's sewing set,with lots of the original contents,the box is made of wood,and card,its covered on the sides in a green paper with gold embellishments,the top has a paper frame of old white with blue and gold floral motifs,the
centrepiece is a rural scene,with a mother and her four children taking part in sewing activities.(and that's just the box!).The contents;A thimble,needle case and scissors,all with rust!!and in need of a clean!,a faux bamboo dolls chair,partially embroidered,with original wools,4 exquisite tiny boxes with glass and gold paper lids containing beads,a card of linen lacet's,some lovely silk ribbon,there is also fixed in the lid a embroidery pattern that has never been removed !!and I have added some silks on cards ,some buttonhole thread,and some pistils.
The condition is remarkable,there are some scuffs to the paper,and a little damage to the corners,but for a paper toy of this age.If you are a lover of French linens,you will probably know that lots of them are dowry pieces,started when the girls were quite young,so I presume this would have been a very luxurious gift to a little seamstress.The size is 11 x 13.5 x3.25 inches(34 x 28 x 8.25 cms).
