Classic vintage handled sewing basket/box, made in Japan for JC Penney.

Decorated with blue/green and white on natural with green plastic edging and a green plastic closure.

This large, handled sewing basket is in good vintage condition. The silky material inside the basket is a lovely shade of light green. There are pin holes (some rusty) on the pin cushion. I have included a variety of 16 pins in the pin cushion - most are longer hat pins. The interior does have some stains as well that may or may not be able to be removed. The exterior has some issues on the top with the bamboo slats broken towards the length of the middle – only noticed upon close inspection. At that time, I also discovered that these slats are decorated with miniature drawings (pictured). Not sure if this was original or an add on by a child. So cute! The rest of the wicker (including the handle) appears to be in good working order with minor “age spots” – there are a couple of small greenish stains on the front left rim.

The box itself, not including the handle, measures 5½" high by 11" wide by 8" deep.

Interior label reads “An Exclusive Penney's Fashion”.

Bottom of the box is stamped “Lot 102” & “JAPAN” in green and has 4 light green knobby feet.

Comes with vintage supplies too!
