This is a beautiful antique Victorian Ladies oak brass mounted wooden sewing casket,dating from around the 1890's.

The box is in the form of a little travelling trunk with the oak carved to resemble wooden slats,brass stud decoration and sweet little brass drop handles.It has fantastic brass strap work decoration and a large brass plaque on the lid.

The inside is lined with burgundy red velvet and there are tools in the lid,a gothic-style pair of scissors,large bodkin and bone handles picker.There are no fittings in the base so i have added 4 vintage reels of cotton as this is probably what it would have contained originally.

The box is in very good clean condition,it has no key but still close securely.It measures 15.5 cms x 7.5 cms x 6 ms.

A lovely antique ladies sewing casket that would grace any collection.
