Period French fruitwood sewing box. This antique sewing box was made in France in the the early to mid 1800's. The top slides up to reveal several thread holders and the front has a single drawer. There most probably was a cushion on the front lid at one time. This piece was sold many years ago at Christies East in New York. Measures 10 inches wide 6 and one half inches deep and inches high. Very good condition. Just in from a local estate.
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
