COLLECTION #190: Vintage Singer Puzzle Box
It's Orphan Wednesday! Today's fun item is a Singer Puzzle Box sewing machine accessory holder. This little box has such an interesting, innovative design, that it has the patent information right on the top.
I was able to find quite a bit of information online about this box. In fact, Wikipedia even has a page about it, showing photos of many of the attachments and what they do! You can find it here.
blog that gives some additional details about these sewing boxes, but I am still unable to find out exactly how old my box is. I assume it was included with my sewing machine (which you can read about here), so that would make it from 1890 or 1891. I'll have to research further.
If I find out any additional information about my particular box, I'll come back and edit this post. I hope you enjoy my wonderful little box!
