Pretty little vintage fabric-covered boxes, shabby but very decorative

I have decided that it is time to part with some of my treasured storage boxes, they are really pretty, but not very practical, so I will be selling these four on thursday in my ebay shop. The bottom three are French, the top one is English, and filled with sewing thread etc. I used to store vintage ribbons and trimmings in them, but my stock out-grew them a while ago, so I have made some hard decisions, as our home is quite small, and storage spaces are rapidly running out! I have decided use leather/cardboard suitcases and trunks, as they are larger and easy to stack, not quite as pretty as these boxes, but still very good looking in their own way.
