Simons Brothers is located in Philadelphia, PA. The company was founded in 1840 and is still in production today. This company were major producers of sterling and gold thimbles and other sewing items. The front of this gorgeous, heart shaped box is skillfully engraved with a flowing, wreath of flowers blossoms and leaves. The beautifully engraved flowers, blossoms and leaves just jump out at you! The artist created the ornate, floral engraving to form the illusion of a three dimensional effect. The realistic looking leaves are skillfully engraved to simulate veining. The flowers and leaves are extremely well detailed to appear life-like! Each flower and blossom is carefully engraved with precision and attention to detail! This sewing kit screams spring is here and you can smell the flowers! This is a well made, exceptional piece that is sensational in every detail!
