This is a great sewing notions box for any seamstress. At 7 ½” wide, 6 1/8” deep and 4 1/8” tall (without the bird on top), its compact size makes it easy to fit anywhere, and if you decorate in more country style, it would be cute sitting out. There are two doors that swing out to hold 16 spools of thread on the front door, and 6 spools and pins, buttons, etc. on the back door. The main wood appears to be mahogany with pine on the inside thread racks. The bird(which is detachable – held on with pegs) holds a pair of scissors and is also a pin cushion (one side of the pin cushion is pristine and the other has been used a lot!). The bottom states this is patented and was made by H. W. Murray of San Pedro, California. The wood has very few dings in it, but it does have a small drip of white paint on the side. The scissors and spools are not included; they are just for demonstration.
