- An antique Victorian period c1900 sewing or work box measuring 11 in (279 mm) x 7.75 in (197 mm) x 6 in (152 mm). The box has has a brass lock and two strong brass hinges and is fitted with a tray with various sized compartments with silk covered lids for holding Sewing accessories - one is shaped to hold a thimble at either end. There is further storage space to the underside of the lid ( side gussets not in good condition with repair). It has lovely inlaid geometric decoration in ebony and boxwood with a diamond shaped cartouche to the top in various woods ( some stained). It has the ornate initials EJ in pokerwork to the centre. The box is in overall very good condition with some expected wear and slight losses to veneer etc.. , which are commensurate with its age and use with a tight age split or possible long scratch to veneer on back face, none of which really detract. A lovely quality Sewing box for someones collection, display or use.
