Victorian 1800’s Etui Sewing Box with silk lining.
A charming Victorian sewing 'Etui' box, beautifully carved in oak with a lattice pattern.
The bijou interior is lined with silk and trimmed with a barley twist cord.
It once housed an intricate array of threads and yarns used by a nimble-fingered lady whose daily recreation consisted of embroiding beautifully detailed tapisteries or sampler pictures to adorn the walls of their homes.
Today it is ready to serve as a beautiful jewellery box or a safe cache to store treasured mementos.
