French 19th Century Leather Needlework Trunk Shaped Box with Gold Tools
French 19th century leather fitted sewing box in the shape of a trunk embossed with a gold scrolling leaf design. Needlework boxes were commonly sold by jewelers and stamped with the jeweler’s name on the inside. This one bears the imprint of A.Augis of Lyon on the silk lining. The velvet lined fitted tray has 14k gold tools, two thread winders, scissors, needle case, thimble, large needle and two stilettos. The fitted tray lifts out so that thread may be stored underneath. The handles on the tools have serpents while the needle case and thread winders have a floral design. Amazingly this box still retains its original key for locking.
