Item details

Beautiful old French cardboard skeins of pure fine wool yarn in various colours, "Laine St. Pierre Lyon-Paris".
"Les Laines marque St. Pierre sont recommandées pour tous les travaux de Dames"....Translation...."The wools marked St. Pierre are recommended for all work of ladies."
The colours and calligraphy on these are exquisite! While the wool may still be fine for use, it was the tactile decorative appeal that drew me to them. The card has yellowed slightly and there is a lovely vertical gold band in the middle. Rust and pink cards have beautiful drawing of St. Pierre.
These would be wonderful framed in a shadow box as a gift for a seamstress or anyone interested in vintage textiles, charming in a powder room, bedroom or entry hall.
Very rare French ephemera.

2-1/2" wide
Full card of 6 sections is 8", both the blues have all sections and are this size.
Rust & Pink also same size, but have 5 sections of wool.
Dark brown has 5 sections and is shorter, 7".

I use recycled boxes whenever possible.
I’m happy to combine shipping for multiple purchases.

As with all my items, you pay actual shipping to your location. Prices quoted are estimates. If shipping costs to your location are lower than stated, overages will be refunded via original method of payment.
