Cantilever Sewing Box


We’re sorry this sewing box is sold. We have many more great vintage items available, please check here.

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 have knob handles and all visible parts have been varnished.

Stamped Made in Poland we believe this is probably from the 70’s or 80’s but of course it’s really hard to tell and it may be older (the type of screws used would mean that it’s probably not later than this).

There are a variety of mixed haberdashery items inside including lots of cotton on mostly plastic reels and cardboard tubes (the cardboard tunes are mostly Sylko , there are no Sylko cotton reels), a tin of buttons, elastics, some cloth off cuts, tape measure, pins, scissors etc.

Due to the size and to prevent damage the main handle will be removed for posting.
Condition wise the box is really clean, there are a few light scratches and a couple of screws have been replaced with similar looking ones.
