A sweet child's sewing box from the Edwardian era.  The lithograph graphics of the cardboard box features a printed oval of a boy and girl, in colonial dress, which is centered on the lid.   The remainder of the box is a rose red with highlights of gold design.  It is a box with provenance, as a note inside states it was from the Mt Gilead fair in 1911 and given as a gift by Ida.  Mt Gilead is a small community in rural northern Ohio.

The inside of the box has compartments, plus a strap on the lid, which holds a packet of Sharp needles.  Other items include a small metal button hook (a suitable size for buttoning children gloves), plus an aluminum thimble, advertising White Sewing Machine Co., a small packet of dress hook and eyes and an unopened skein of Royal Society thread.

Size of the box is 4-1/2" long x 3-3/8" wide x 1-5/8" tall. 

Condition:  Very decent but does have some tweaking of the corners.  Nothing more than would be expected from normal handling.  There is somewhat of a break in the strap on the inside lid of box, however, it is still connected and still usable.
