Its interior is of superb quality and just what you would expect from Edwards, with a beautiful ruched green silk to the lid. The removable tray is fitted with high quality mother of pearl fittings: six at the front are for cotton spools; the back three, a waxer, tape and pin sharpener; two on top of the canted lids are little containers which, when removed, allow you access to a silk pull underneath, enabling the removal of the lids. To the back are two carved mother of pearl needle cases.
The centre pad contains tweezers, scissors pencil, button hook and cork screw. Due to its outstanding quality and construction we attributed to Edwards, established 1813 (David Edwards, Thomas Edwards and Thomas Jeyes Edwards, 21 King Street, Bloomsbury, London). Kingwood, also known as violetwood, is found in South America and is violet-brown in colour with a darker grain. A very dense and hard wood, it is only suitable for the creation of smaller items due to the small tree that yields it. Edwards were purchased by Asprey in 1859.
This fabulous Edwards antique sewing box has a fully working lock and tasselled key.
