This vintage, Mid-Century Modern storage and sewing box / footstool is in great pre-owned condition. Probably crafted in the 60's, the tapestry pattern, nearly indestructible, vinyl oilcloth has no rips or tears and is easily wiped clean. A lovely gold trim surrounds the entire piece, with one small tear on a corner (photo). The Redmon, Peru Ind hallmark is still visible on the glossy chipboard lining the inside of the hinged lid.The chipboard has some water damage that does not affect the sturdiness of the piece or the exterior beauty. This functional furniture collectible is a great accent piece for any room, with a large area for storage. Originally created as a sewing box, this would also store just about any other item such as knitting, office supplies, a blanket throw, or even some small toys. My Mom used it as a footstool and stored some of her books inside.
It would make a great side table or night stand, and would even be fun in a dorm room to stash snacks. This wood framed piece is well built and quite sturdy and level, with no unevenness or wobbles. All 4 solid wooden legs still have the metal inserts on the bottoms. Most likely not designed to sit or stand on - not recommended.
Interior storage is 17.5" x 11.5" x 7.5 deep. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Sewing (1930-Now)\Baskets & Boxes".The seller is "jdk070388" and is located in this country: US.
