This is a very attractive box made from rosewood with an interesting inlaid decoration on the center of the lid and around the keyhole. The lid lifts up to reveal a sewing tray with compartments, and underneath is the fold out writing slope with a section for pens and ink etc. The condition is good for it's age with some wear and usage marks and a very small repair to the wood on the lower left corner. The fabric on the slope area was replaced at some time. The sewing tray shows lots of signs of wear and usage with some minor repairs over the years.
