This is a beautiful original antique French advertising embroidery floss storage box from the 1800's. It measures 7 1/2 inches in length, 4 1/4 inches in width and 3 1/8 inches in height. The front and back are both signed: CB Societe Francaise de Cotons a Coudre Paris EP. It has a hand painted bird scene on the top lid. It is in great condition for its age and would be a nice addition to a collection.
