A fine English Colonial sewing box in ebonized wood inlaid with mother of pearl, circa 1850. The box is 12 1/4" wide by 9 1/4' deep by approx. 6" high. In good overall condition. There is mother of pearl inlay on the top and front of the box which is 99% intact. There were feet to the box at one point, probably mother of pearl also. The box has a blue silk moire interior, possibly original, which is a little tattered. The tray is missing and the top has some slight buckling of veneer to the side panels. Please view all photos carefully. Guaranteed to be as described.
