Picked this small case up cheaply, I have a thing about small "suitcases" but this one isn't exactly a suitcase. Got a nice surprise when I opened it.
Its got a Moire silk lining and the outside is real leather so its been a fairly posh thing in its day.
Its very similar in style to the other antique sewing kit I got from my elderly Aunt they have the same silk lining.
Tidied it up a bit and filled it with sewing treasure.
The outside got a mini makeover but its very worn on the edges so not much I can do with it.
Made a fabric handle with mother of pearl buckle for decoration.
