Sweet little work box, sewing or trinket box from the early 20th century. It was probably for a child. It is wooden with a covering of rexin type material in a dark red or maroon colour. It is prettily decorated with gold on the top and has a pretty brass catch. The inside has all its original yellow lining and there is a mirror on the underside of the lid. There are various tools in a tray: miniature scissors, thimble, pencil, pen knife and wooden needle case. Also there is a packet of needles.
The box is in very good condition both inside and out as you should be able to see from the photographs. Please examine these to help you make your assessment of the item’s appearance and condition, (the mouse will allow you to achieve a large, close up view). If you need further photographs or information please do not hesitate to contact me.
The box measures 5.25 inches (13cm) x 4.5 inches (9cm) x 2.75 inches (6.5cm).
