craft or hobby Hardwood furniture storage box!!!

ITEM DESCRIPTION:
Up for sale today is an AS IS, vintage made Norway accordion [telescoping] style tiered drawer sewing box. The piece is made by Strommen Bruk Hamar and is stamped on the underside. The sewing/crafts box measures 23 inches tall at the bent-wood center handle. When completely extended, the sewing box measures 67 inches long! The sewing box has (4) legs as well. MY PRICE IS $100 DOLLAR'S LESS (38% LESS!!!) than the value shown in Kovel's 2011 pricing book (price realized at an auction -- see photos). Would also be a great box or case for fly fishing materials or for crafts like jewelry or bead making!

This is more than an expandable sewing box…it is a BEAUTIFUL piece of furniture in super vintage condition. It’s a hardwood, dark Mahogany and has a laminated, lighter natural wood tone inside the drawers.
