We bought this gorgeous little sewing/work box last week.
We often come across this type of concertina box at markets & auctions, but this one had that little bit of extra quality. It dates from the 1950s and has a lovely, rich colour. It’s cute & compact, but there are lots of compartments for small tools, threads & pins. It has little splayed feet and there’s a nicely turned wooden handle and knobs to top & sides. A real sweetie!!
We must have had dozens of vintage sewing boxes in stock over the years and this one has to be one of our favourites. Here’s a little montage of some of the others.
