Here for sale is a great antique box. It has a wonderful inlaid band running around the front and top and diamond detail around the lock and top too. The box has lots of compartments and lift out insert tray so perfect for the storage of sewing, haberdashery or craft. Each compartment is lined with a thick green fabric and there is a wooden bar to the lid to shop items falling out. 


The outer cover of the brass hinges to the back are split. Some of the inlay is chipped at the corners. 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.
