PRICE: €2.900

SKU: 078-0711

Rectangular sewing box with steel-cut decoration and monogram A on the lid. The escutcheon is cut out in the shape of a coat of arms and the key is present. The box is veneered in burl and the surfaces are surrounded by a fine ebonised edge. The rich interior with little partitions reveals a glimpse into the past of domestic craftsmanship. In particular, the small table clock in the ebonised case and matching steel-cut decoration is a charming detail. The movement is signed: "Franz Mayer et Co. zur Stadt Karlsbad". Two yarn spindles are to be screwed to the table tops with c-shaped clamps and are also very finely decorated in steel-cut manner.
