Here we have a vintage sewing box, probably homemade in the 1950s or 60s. It has a solid teak body and legs, a padded top and removable tray insert.

This cute, one off box is in good, solid and clean condition. The sides and top had quite a lot of damage, so were covered with gorgeous vintage kimono wool fabric on the sides and coordinating vintage mustard velvet on the top. The piece has been finished with lots of hand stitching in mustard embroidery thread, a removable tassel on the bakelite handle and a couple of tonal vintage buttons. There are some scuffs and marks on the legs and the wood inside the box (shown in photos) but it still looks great.

Please note that whilst I put a lot of love, time and care into my pieces, they are by no means machined perfection. They’re all done by hand and subsequently have a handmade finish. If you are looking for something that looks like it’s come from the high street, my pieces probably aren’t for you! 😉

Mad and Bad Vintage

We primarily sell sympathetically restored and occasionally eccentrically reupholstered pieces of quality vintage, retro and Mid Century furniture. Throw in a bit of kitsch, some funky homeware and our frenchie Nibbler and that’s pretty much Mad & Bad Vintage on a plate 🙂
