This stunning Boulle sewing box from the 19th century is a true treasure for sewing enthusiasts and collectors alike. With its compact dimensions of 7.5 cm x 16.5 cm x 11.5 cm, it boasts a remarkable level of craftsmanship and historical charm.

Opening the lid reveals a delightful interior adorned in pretty pink and green velvet. Nestled within, you'll find a curated set of various sewing items, including a fine needle, an ornate thimble, a small knife, and a hook. As you examine these treasures, their reflections dance in the mirror, adding an enchanting touch. The mirror is elegantly framed with delicate lace, enhancing the box's allure.

To keep your precious belongings secure, the box comes with an accompanying key. While the box has endured the test of time, it should be noted that the surround of the keyhole requires reattachment. This minor restoration can restore its functionality and preserve its beauty for generations to come.

The top of the box features a lavish design, showcasing the artistry of brass and other materials meticulously inlaid into the surface. The intricate patterns and rich textures evoke a sense of opulence and refinement, epitomizing the Napoleonic era.

Although this exquisite piece has experienced some signs of age, including two missing back feet, a small chip below one corner, and slight lifting of brass in certain areas, it does not diminish its overall beauty. Please refer to the accompanying photos for a closer look at these imperfections.

This pretty little box carries with it a fascinating history, and it now seeks a new home where it will be cherished and admired for many more years to come. The listed price includes shipping, tracking, and insurance, ensuring its safe arrival at your doorstep.

Please take a moment to double-check the size of the items before placing your order. We have taken close-up photos to showcase the intricate details, which may unintentionally create the illusion of a larger size.

    This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.
    This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

    Information I Collect
    To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information if you contact me directly.

    Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
    I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
    • as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
    • when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
    • if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
    • as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

    Information Sharing and Disclosure
    Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
    • Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
    • Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
    • Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
    • Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
    • Data Retention
    • I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

    • Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
    • I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
    Your Rights
    If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
    • Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
    • Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
    • Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
    • Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
