Rare Regency Kingwood Sewing Box / Writing Cabinet

Rare Kingwood sewing and writing cabinet with double strung brass and ornate brass inlay to the front and top, standing on four turned wooden feet.

Opening the door to this exceptional sewing and writing cabinet reveals gold tooled leather book spines, these are in fact three drawers that are disguised as four books with a divider. The books are labelled "British Poets Vol I" & "II" and "British Classics Vol I" & "II".

This impressive regency cabinet contains its original interior. The bottom drawer is paper lined and has a single large compartment for storage.
The middle drawer contains several compartments stocked with sewing supplies including thread spools, thimbles, pincushion, tape measure and a fitted tool pad with tweezers, scissors, pricker and needle case.
The top drawer features two inkwells, pen tray and other compartments for storing other writing supplies.

This wonderfully unusual box / cabinet comes with a fully working lock and tasselled key.
