SOLD Fine Chip Carved Sewing Box

Fine Chip Carved Sewing Box

Crisply carved by someone with excellent skills, this tramp art sewing box sits on four small feet and measures 12″L X 9″D X 9″H. The rather intricate design consists of pyramids and rectangles that are six and seven layers deep, some topped with early tacks. The “hidden” drawer at the bottom reveals a striking cigar box graphic — the Lowenclub lion, which clearly inspired the maker in more ways than one: the blue-black paint on the box is the same rich hue as the graphic. The lift-up top has newer hinges, and the beige velvet lining and pin cushion top also appear to be replacements. A well-made piece in excellent condition.
