19th Century Velvet Sewing Box

Stunning cerulean velvet and celluloid box. The velvet has patinaed over time and is pure perfection in our opinion. Each corner is reinforced with brass chasing details and small rounded feet. The velvet surrounds two lovely European scenes carved in celluloid. The interior of the box opens (with its original brass key) to reveal a French blue silk grosgrain interior and remnants of sewing tools once used. A perfect keepsake box.
