A charming Antique Sewing Box in the figural form of a Turtle. The Turtle is made from a real sea shell and has nickel plate limbs. To open the little box you press the turtles head, the interior is lined with velvet has has small loops for sewing implements. The Turtle measures 3 7/8" x 2 7/8" x 1 7/8". He is in good overall condition. The only thing to note are a few small imperfections on the sea shell, see photos. You have to hold the turtles feet to open the box because he has a tendency to tip forward. This is a very unusual antique sewing item.
