Carrying on with the Tudor theme this tiny piece is a reproduction of a sewing box that would have been used by the ladies of that period for holding needles and threads for carrying out repairs to garments.
The box is constructed from genuine 16th Century English Oak , the square lock plate is genuine Ivory inlaid with brass and the inside is lined with 17th Century Vellum. Instead of filling the box with various sewing items i decided to put a small Bronze Tudor button which also dates from this period and is removable for viewing.
Unfortunate for the wearer who lost it, but fortunate for me as it makes this piece a unique tiny treasure.
The dimensions of this piece are 35mm Width x 35mm Height x 30mm Depth, the box was then given a natural bee's wax finish.
Have a great and safe week everyone. Tony.
