On offer for sale is a top quality Victorian sewing box dating to circa 1880's era. It's in good condition for it's age, but it's not perfect. Approximate dimensions 12 inches long by 8 1/2 inches wide and 5 1/4 inches high. Mahogany box with ebony inlaid edging, and the edging material is missing from the back top and bottom edge, but it hardly notices. The interior has some mother of pearl spool holders which have some damage here and there, but the fact that they still exist is amazing. Looks like this box may have originally had manicure tools as well, but they have long since gone. This was obviously a very upmarket and expensive box in it's day, and it's quite heavy. Please don't mistake this sewing box for one of those run of the mill type which are out there, this one is a top quality piece inside and out. It looks great, feels great and is ready to be used and admired. This to me is the Cadillac of sewing boxes. This piece is sure not to disappoint, but please bear in mind it is a vintage item and will show normal signs of wear and usage marks.
