In outstanding condition, this sewing box was made by British Lighthouse keepers of the Trinity Lighthouse Service and were marketed directly to the sailing captains and owners of the ships they aided.
With a name plaque marked, "Marjorie", a heart shaped escutcheon and detailed inlays, this box was likely a gift to fine lady to use as her sewing box. The wood displays subtle coloration throughout and excellent workmanship. The inside papers retain their blue color with gold decoration. Includes the original key.
Six compartments, each with decorated lid with bone handle, surround a central black velvet pincushion. The top layer lifts off to access a larger open compartment underneath.
