Antique Boxes
Small antique boxes hold a fascination for most us, as few of us can pass one without the strong desire to open it up! I think it appeals to our mental desire to compartmentalise. The types of box available are as numerous as the uses they were put to.

I have also included a few sewing/miscellaneous items in this category.
