English Georgian Sewing Basket Work Box

A stunning and all original delicately designed swing handle sewing basket from late Georgian/ early Regency England. This superb 1800 to 1820 example is made from stained wood with original gilt metal furniture, horn swing carry handle, horn upright staves and its original green silk interior. Offered in a gorgeous mellow colorway with its original patina this is a very scarce little example. This item comes with wonderful provenience purchased from a lifelong collection of early textiles, purses and sewing accessories. If like us you adore the Georgian/Regency period, it will not be hard for you to imagine this sweet wooden sewing basket being regularly used by a upper class lady owner for one of her many gentile sewing projects.

Size: Base 3" (8 cm) tall by 7.5" (19 cm) wide by 6" (15 cm) deep .Handle height 7.5"

Condition: All original, with minor sun/age fading to the lid. There are 3 old drying cracks to the oval top wooden collar (very common with circular and oval wood items). Some nibbles to the outer edge of the oval lid from usage. Minor dulling to the gilding on the lid knob. Interior green silk is sooo neatly stitched in place and is all complete with no shredding, just minor fading. The horn swing handle is in good condition and works perfectly.

This is a rare opportunity to own a very unique Regency sewing basket.
