This yellow-painted Sewing Box is decorated on 4 sides and the lid with wonderful flower sprays. The decoration is hand-done in greens, blues, reds and pinks and there is a blue line border with “fleur de lis” in the corners of the lid. The box measures slightly over 7” square and is 3 ½” high. The interior is covered with red “Fleur de lis” on a gold cloth (or paper that very much feels like cloth) background. Nailed construction, the box probably dates to the early 20th century. It has been used but definitely not abused: the painting is complete with some bumping on the top and front side (showing up, probably, as white spots in the photos) and there is some soiling on the lid. The paper lining on the interior is very fine and complete! No splits or cracks.
