Wonderful antique French sewing box is filled with antique and vintage sewing objects, spools of thread, metallic trims, velvet trims, a few sewing instruments and little boxes filled with the antique French glass beads!
The antique French box is nicely made with French blue paper and gold trim around all the edges with a French lithograph on the side of the lid and some little ones on the bottom flap. Once the box is opened from a latch that is stamped BREVETE S.G.B.S
The box shows some typical wear as expected from a genuine antique item, but it is minimal. pIt measures about 10" x 14" x 4 1/2" but the edges are rounded with that. French in origin, circa about 1860. It would also make for a wonderful doll box.
