This is a beautiful vintage (or antique) sewing box. The beige sewing casket features cherubs on the top lid with ornate embossed floral sprays one the curved sides. Ornate metal hinged clasp in front. The interior is impressive, fabric lined with a raised tool tray made of fabric and leather. The tool tray holds a thimble, a button hook, and awl, two additional hooks, and a pair of trimming scissors (I added the scissors from my own collection). Also included is a sweet mother ivorine placard that was included in the box when I purchased it.
The beige exterior appears to be an early vinyl or celluloid material. In good overall vintage condition with some vinyl loss at the back corners, the interior is intact with aged fabric.
The sewing kit measures 9" wide and 3" tall. A lovely addition to the antique sewing collection.
