Mystery box.

I'm still getting the odd phone call and delivery from my little ad in the paper for old sewing supplies.  Yesterday a lady from our patchwork group arrived with this box.  It used to be her Mums.  

The box has little compartments in it and a handle on the front as if its been on a shelf with others at some stage in its life.

This is the label inside the lid.  Note 1927.

Some of the goodies that were inside.  War time packs of hooks and eyes, snaps, buttons and wooden cotton reels.  Fascinating, and she said to keep the box too!
