Early 20th century children's sewing box made in Germany
Antique sewing box with an unusual lid featuring countryside riding/hunting scene embossed in high relief, showing a man on a horse, a woman riding side-saddle, and a dog running beside them. The box has a gilt embossed decorative paper covering; the paper on the bottom has "Germany" incorporated into the pattern, no other identifying marks.
6.5 x 6.75 x 1.5 inches. No date, ca. 1910-20s. In Good condition with rubbing to the exterior, lid is bowing up at the lip, making use of the clasp unadvisable as-is.

Two embroidered examples folded neatly and tucked into the bottom compartment. And, of course, those scissors.
