Very Pretty Floral Vintage Box & Embroidery Patterns for Table Linens

Product ID: H134

This delightful and very pretty vintage chocolate box is quite a rarity, as few beautiful card examples like this can have survived. This beauty is decorated with embrodiered garden flowers in warm and natural colours, gathered  in a small pottery vase. The immensely attractive vivid flowers are  set upon an old chest, next to an open leaded window, which overlooks an idyllic English country garden, filled with hollyhocks, delphiniums and lupins etc. In the distance is a quintessentially English thatched cottage, in what can only be described as a truly wonderful and charming English scene. A garden bird sings on a bough by the open window.

Set against a textured linen ground, this beautiful box is not only perfect for storing embrodiery silks (rather fittingly the person to whom it belonged did just that!), cherished letters, or craft accessories but  is an absolutely beautiful display piece around the house. Enclosed inside the box, as indicated on the side, is what seems to be the original embrodiery transfer that came with the chocolate box! The floral embrodiery pattern has designs for a trolley cloth, tray cloth, tea cosy & table cloth  and napkins. There is also a list of items together with prices in pounds, shillings and pence for ordering additional items from the embrodiery design  maker at The Pattern Shop, Long Acre, London WC2.

Size & Condition:
The box is approximately 26cm by 18.5cm and  has minor age-related wear. There is some bumping to the corners as one would expect with a card box of this age, as shown in the photos. The textured soft blue base designed to emulate fabric is inscribed, 'Chocolat Tobler Ltd. London W1 & Dundee. "Symphony" Plain Chocolate Assortment and "Ballerina" Milk Chocolate Assortment. No. 0007.
 
This is the most beautiful and loveliest card box ever! What a wonderful piece for the needlewoman or flower lover or anyone else who loves vintage colour and beauty!
