English Ladies Keeping or Sewing Box, Victorian, c. 1880

This is a beautiful ladies keeping box which could be used for the storage of a variety of items, most likely those having to do with sewing. Inside the box, which lined beautifully with pink, is a large compartment, which would hold letters, and paper. On the underside of the lid, is a large "pin cushion." There are also two vertical strips of cloth with space to slip memos under the cloth to the hold the item. The outer edge of the box's interior is a match pink "hard" paper in the form of an accordion. The bottom of the inside of the compartment is lined with velvet.

The box is probably pine, treated by a craftsman to give the box a patterned and intricate appearance. All sides of the box repeat this pattern. The box sits on three moulded pieces of wood. The top of the box is slightly higher than the surrounding border of pine.

The box measures 15 inches wide, 8 14/ inches deep, and 6 inches tall.
