Today we are delighted to offer for sale a lovely antique 19th century Victorian Folk Art wicker sewing basket! This delicate and precious sewing box is a wonderful example of American Folk Art craftsmanship! This sewing box was most likely made by/for a lady for light sewing and mending and for traveling, given its’ compact and light weight. The box is finely and intricately woven and detailed, featuring solomonic-style twisted side, top, and bottom trim, with geometric panels inset with printed Braquenie-style fabric. The interior of the box is upholstered with original cotton floral striped fabric. The sewing box is in good antique condition, with minor wear and patina commensurate with age and type of use. There are minor losses to wicker in a few areas, such as bottom corners and handle. There is fading/darkening of the fabric elements. Box sold as is. This precious hand-crafted sewing box will add Victorian warmth and grace to any interior. Fresh to the market!
Dimensions: 11″ in length, 7″ in depth, and 10″ in height
