Antique Wood Floor Standing Portable Sewing Box, Knitting Box Caddy

Beautiful antique wooden sewing or knitting box, a floor stand-up portable model with carrying handle. Everything on this sewing caddy is original, including the hinges, screws, legs and dark finish. Features lids on both sides that provide access to the main compartment; each lid is adorned with hand-painted floral imagery indicative of the era. Legs and supporting beam are wood lathe spindles. Made from solid hardwood (mahogany?) not veneer, the entire sewing box is completely covered in dark stain lacquer. The fabulous patina makes this piece appear just as old as it really is.

This sewing box lends a nice comfortable art deco feel to any room. Great for storing yarn, sewing supplies, or even magazines. The ornate floral accents have begun to wear away, but these offer some insight to how old this box really is - 1930s or even older. Inside there are two slots that could be used to place a spool of yarn on a knitting needle, for the purpose of knitting directly from the box.

DIMENSIONS: Measures 12" x 12" at the top. Stands 27" tall to the top of the handle.

CONDITION: No repairs, no serious flaws although there is some scuffs to the finish & scrapes to the wood in some areas. We should note that there is a very tiny crack that begins at a nail near the top of one side and runs down several inches (see picture #5). This crack appears very old and was perhaps lacquered over, possibly when it was originally made. Additionally, when placed on a hard surface this box has a slight lean (like a wobbly chair) due to an imperfectly centered foot. Upon inspection we've concluded it was probably like this its entire lifetime.
