This beautiful box belonged to my husbands dear old Aunty Em who was given this as a young girl. She lived to be 103 and died in the 1980's. I remember visiting her and seeing this lovely timber box sitting on a shelf. Imagine our delight when my husbands Grandmother passed it on to us to keep in the family. It became my sewing box and I have never done anything to it other than polish it with marveer. It could probably do with re-lining but I like to remember it the way it came to us. It is a lovely reminder of the past.
