I was asked to primp & pimp this vsm for a local church. It was discovered in the manse, but no one knows how it came to be there.

Original owner a Mrs. Eric Lund of Fence, WI. husband and only son predeceased her. She passed in the '90s. No known surviving family. Located in north east Wisconsin near Iron Mountain, MI.

It's gorgeous. Love the provenance, and all those ivory buttons come with it too? Nice!

Many more buttons in that drawer! Here's the other drawer, and the needle packets. Those white rings are part of a bracelet, there are several links and a clasp.
