Description

An English Victorian antique sewing or work box. Listing is for the box only, not the sewing items shown.

Small wooden box with a dark stain and varnished finish and an ornate, Renaissance style transfer print applied to the lid.

There is a brass escutcheon and lock to the front panel, but no key.

The interior is fully lined with the original metallic gold and pale yellow patterned paper.

It features a small mirror to the inner lid, framed by metallic gold foil and red paper border, and an eight sectioned lift out tray with a deep violet velvet lid, topped with a machine turned wood finial over the center section.

Nice example of a late 19th century ladies storage box for sewing items.

It measures 21.5 cm / 8.5" wide by 14.5 cm / 5.75" deep by 7.5 cm / 3" high.

Condition is generally good for it's age, but there are a few issues:

• There is some loss to the transfer print on the lid.

• The lid is slightly out of alignment because there has been a "make do" repair with a small nail to one of the hinges.

• The paper lining to the underside of the box is creased, marked with some loss at the corners.

• The mirror has some marking and loss to the silvering.

• There are a few areas of small tears and loss to the paper lining to the interior.

Please see all the detail photos and convo me with any questions.

Shipping quotes include tracking and insurance.
