Cantilever Sewing Box


This item is now sold but please take a look around our website, we have many more great vintage items for sale.

Here is a lovely large size and well made cantilever sewing box complete with lots of vintage sewing items. This has a total of 5 storage compartments made of solid wood with dovetail joints. The top lids and sides have knob handles and all visible parts have been varnished.

This has a label on the base for Quickfor Ltd which we believe was the manufacturer, this probably dates from the 1960’s or earlier but it’s really hard to tell and we can’t be certain about the date.

There are a variety of mixed haberdashery items inside including lots of cotton on mostly plastic reels and some on cardboard tubes, a bag of buttons, a tin of pins, elastics, seam cloth, tape measure, scissors, a thimble etc etc.

Condition wise the box is really clean, there are some light scratches but it looks great and has many years of use left in it.

Due to the size and to prevent damage the main handle will be removed for posting.
