This sweet vintage sewing box was found at an estate sale. Measuring approximately 14.5'' long, 9.5'' wide and 7.5'' tall.
The fabric design is done in shades of burgundy, pink, green and gold on an ivory background. Quilted with a plastic covering on the top. Plastic pocket on the inside of the lid. Lift-out tray with many compartments that will hold 12 spools of thread, 12 bobbins, with 9 additional sections for scissors and other notions. Pull out drawer and drop-down front.
The exterior is in great condition! Four "feet" are intact. No stains on exterior. No funky smells. Tarnishing on the hardware that is to be expected with an older item.
The interior has some flaws from use, over-stuffing and age: There is one crack in the spool compartment in the inner tray and another along the side that don't affect the integrity of the tray; there are two other cracks thru the tray on the front left and right corners. i think some superglue could help stabilize them and prevent further compromise. Scratches on the tray from use and discoloration from age. Cracking of the selvedge edge on the inner lining.
This sewing box may not be perfect, but she is sweet and still very useful! A pretty box that would look great in your home while it helps round up all the little stuff from your hobby!

Product Disclaimer Vintage items have been previously used and loved for many years. They will most likely show signs of wear and have imperfections. I do my best to describe any flaws through words and photos. Holes, tears, stains, and pervasive odors will be noted in the listing. If you have questions or need more information, please contact me prior to purchase and I will be happy to assist you. Items are coming to you from a smoke-free, pet free home. However, most of my stock comes from estate sales and thrift shops and I can’t speak for their original home, although I do my best to purchase form clean environments. Please keep these things in mind before you purchase.
