A beautiful, large wooden box which would probably have been used to keep cloth and essential tools in an old haberdashery. Somebody has lovingly stuck a paper label on the front and carefully handwritten the word 'MATIERIALS' on it. The writing is really pretty and we particularly loved the little spelling mistake!
The box is likely to have been hand crafted and has been covered with a thin, chocolate brown cloth which is well worn - small patches are missing, it has a few white marks and scuffs and some parts are peeling off - all adding to it's lovely rustic character. The inside does smell a little musty and there are some markings on the lining which suggest a bit of damp may have got in at some point. This could be rectified with a drawer liner but please take a look at the photos and drop us a line if you have any questions about this. The box measures:
L53cm x W43cm x D17cm
