Item details

This miniature French clog or sabot is both thimble holder and pincushion. Originally part of a large collection of sabots collected from towns across France over many years, this one is from the town of Saint Philibert in Brittany, north western France.

Length: 5¼" (13.5cm)
Height: 2¼" (6cm)

On the front of the sabot is a pretty little seaside scene and a lady wearing the traditional folk costume of the region. The town's name has been partially worn away but the rest of the piece is in excellent vintage condition.

With a small pale blue velvet pincushion and an insert for the included thimble, this is an unusual and lovely haberdashery accessory.

A perfect gift for anyone who loves to sew!

Please note, bobbins are not included in the listing.

FAQs

Etsy policy allows any items over twenty years old to be sold as vintage: this very broad policy includes items made as recently as the 1990's. Whilst it is extremely difficult to be completely accurate about dates, particularly in France where many household styles remained unchanged for decades, I research my items carefully and always endeavour to provide a good estimate of their age wherever possible. Having spent the majority of my life rummaging in junk shops, whilst I cannot claim to be an expert I certainly have a passion for the often superior quality and durability of old over modern, cheaper manufacturing materials. Old has texture, tarnish and history worn into its skin, a story waiting to be told.

Absolutely! As long as the total weight does not exceed 2kg (just over 4lb) I am happy to combine your purchases into one package, as long as they can be packed together safely. It is however, sometimes more economical to send items in multiple packages because of the weight restrictions. Packages over 2kg can only be sent via Colissimo: it is a more expensive service, but it is quicker and there is greater flexibility in weight allowance (for example, the price is the same between 2kg and 5kg) plus it includes tracking and insurance. Just contact me via Etsy's messaging system and I will work out an estimate for you, or I can simply refund the difference after purchase. Let me know what's best for you.

I am happy to gift-wrap items for you, just let me know in the comments section at checkout. Unless you specifically request otherwise, I use recycled boxes and packing materials as much as possible. Please be assured that this does not impair performance or strength and that your purchase will be professionally and securely packaged.
