Here for sale is a fantastic antique rosewood sewing box. This stunning box has wonderful mother of pearl detail to the top. The rosewood has a wonderful patina and unfortunately there is no key. it has a lovely paper lining and comes complete with lots of vintage sewing pieces. This includes cotton reels, thimbles and needles. A perfect gift for any keen sewer to use and enjoy.


Area of missing veneer to side, please refer to photo. The paper lining is missing on the insert tray. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
