Presented here is a lovely French sewing box in the form of two antique leather bound stacked books. This is a form of trompe l'oeil, meant to fool the eye. The maker has cleverly concealed a red velvet lined interior with pincushion on its top for milady's sewing accroutements. The books are entitled "Ouvres de Homer" and "Sermon de Massillon". The book is in very good condition considering that the books are antique. The measurements are 6 1/4" by 4 1/4" by 2". A beautiful little sewing box for your collection.
