A nice sewing box. I only have one photo as my phone battery ran out. It needs a bit of work, it's very wobbly and there are lots of paint splashes plus a splodge of glittery stuff (you can probably make out a dark patch at the back right of the lid). It's clean and well kept inside, so it shouldn't take too long to get it up and running.
The second item makes me very excited indeed, not just for the item itself but how it has been looked after in the 50 years it's been around
The tool kit is intact, including spare needles, I am in love with the brush
The instruction booklet is here, along with the original bill for purchase of the machine in 1964 and service receipt from 1974.

What a great find, I am enchanted by it. Most important of all, it has the smell. You know the smell I mean, the old, oily, whatever-it-is smell. Like the smell of Halfords or any shop that sells stuff for cars, only better.
