Item details

This stunning red & black vintage wooden sewing box cleverly folds out to expose two tiers of storage on each side. It's a really beautiful way to store all of those crafty odds & ends that would otherwise make a mess of your living area. This traditional accordion fold sewing box from Germany marries form and function beautifully. It dates to the Midcentury, circa 1950s - 1960s, and may have originally a child's smaller version of mom's large sewing caddy.

This red wooden sewing box or kit likely dates to Midcentury (c. 1950s). It can be expanded to open either or both levels. The bottom level of the sewing box is one large storage space, and the top level - which is split - has a two compartments, each with lid with a black knob. This fun & funky retro sewing box is in good vintage condition, with some wear and a little paint loss which adds to its charm. The handle tends to slip to one side, whether by design or because the screws are loose I can't say. It will be very convenient for shipping. The sewing kit is 12" long and 5.75" wide, not including the width of the handle. It stands 7" tall from the bottom of its ball feet to the top knobs. With handle, the kit is 7" wide and 10" tall.

Please note that, because of the large size and weight of this sewing box, it will be more expensive to ship than many of the other items in my shop. If you are interested in purchasing another item(s), it will most likely ship for free, without additional fees. Please contact me if you have any questions.

FAQs

Vintage goods are at least 20 years old, and have normally been "preloved". Wear & tear which is commensurate with age should be expected, and any major defects will be noted in the description. Photos can and should be enlarged to show more detail. If you have further questions about the condition of any item, don't hesitate to ask!

Most packages are sent via Deutsche Post's unregistered Priority mail service. If you would like to track your parcel's progress, please add tracking to your order during checkout; tracking also includes a small measure of insurance. Fees for additional insurance coverage vary by destination & value; please contact me for a quote. Parcels over 2 kilos will be sent via DHL; tracking is included on these, as is insurance. All orders are packaged with care in clean and appropriate packing materials. Most materials are new and many are earth-friendly, such as bio pack peanuts & recycled content packing paper, but occasionally materials are reused. This occurs most often when a reused box is the best and safest fit for the item packaged within.

Deutsche Post keeps their costs low by assessing fees for additional services such as tracking and insurance. Rather than automatically including services which you may not need or want, I pass this option - and cost - along to you. The option to add tracking is given during checkout, and as an add-on item in the shop. If you would like to purchase insurance, please contact me for a quote; the cost varies according to value and destination, and is not available for all countries. I carefully pack all orders, and ship promptly. Once shipped, the boxes are no longer in my control. If you do not take advantage of the optional tracking and insurance services offered, there is unfortunately no recourse for missing or damaged parcels.
