I haven't cleaned this up yet, looks like its been stored away. It is a beige color hard plastic with closure on front. Inside is 35 spools of thread and 20 bobbins. Some of the spools are old wooden ones, 9 or 10 of those. Little space in center that holds the bottom and place (sponge) you can stick needles or pens. Pretty neat sewing kit. Measures 8 inches wide and 12 3/4 long.
