      Dear Karletta. Welcome to WC. The sewing box probably contain several individual tools forming a sewing kit (I am not English speaking person ). The pins was the only remain left from that time. Some links to read about this

      none of these links tell me what ere they are from im assuming the 1920's or 30's as I have a sewing machine from than and it has some features as the sewing box..I love the look on my machine..and its in great shape what can I use to Preserve the box as on the bottom it is peeling some, any suggestions welcome.
