Dating from the end of the 19th/beginning of the 20th century, this little basket is a real beauty.
Measuring 8 inches wide, 5 ¼ inches deep and 4 ½ inches high, it is in excellent condition both inside and out.
The interior is padded and lined with a rich blue satin, with two little pockets for keeping smaller items safe. The inside of the lid is fitted with a needle case in the same colour as the lining, as well as two metal thimbles and a pair of scissors.
It is easy to imagine that this was a child’s sewing basket as the scissors and thimbles are small, but it is so clean and tidy inside that if so, it must have been owned by a very careful child!
Other nice touches include fringing around the padded lid and embroidered ribbon around the top of the basket’s interior.
Condition: there are very few signs of wear and tear on the basket itself. The scissors show their age, as do the needles and the needle case.
