We are so pleased to present this Victorian Shaker Sabbathday Lakes Maine Childs Sewing Box, circa late 19th Century. This dear late Victorian Childs Sewing box includes several original items inside. The box is a heavy board yellow in color, it’s lined with a matching yellow satin. Inside are 2 items attached with yellow satin ribbons. A small needle wax which has never been used and a tiny yellow strawberry pin cushion that has also never been used. Needle wax’s were used to help the needle slide more easily. There are several small pins in the inside lid. The outside has all of it’s original ribbons. The lid is secured with the little celluloid button. This is a difficult item to find especially in this condition. It is most gift worthy. This item can be seen in the book, "Antique Boxes, Inside and Out", on page 332, a marvelous book if your a box collector.
DIMENSIONS: 4 5/8” aide X 3 3/8” deep X 2” tall
CONDITION: in very nice vintage condition. It has a couple of small soiled areas on top and the tape has several small areas of loss.
