This is the continuation of my restoration project to share with all of you, the pictures of the “Puzzle” Box dated February 19, 1889 and its contents. I relined the interior with new velvet and cleaned all of the attachments with liquid silver cleaner.

Love the puzzle boxes! Never knew they existed until a few months ago. I would love to get one!

I wonder if there's a website that explains what all the attachments are and what they were used for.

I never thought of silver cleaner. That was a great idea, your attachments look great.

The old Singer books have explanations for the attachments. If you don't have one, I'm sure someone here will have a copy or you can look on Singer's site.

I also never thought of silver cleaner. I'm getting some!
