This adorable vintage thread holder / sewing box is quite unique. It has pegs to hold eight spools of thread and the base has slots which correspond with each spool. The spools thread through each slot so that you can use them while the lid is closed. It also has a cork pincushion in the center.
The lid has yet another, smaller lid hiding a place to store pins, needles, or whatever.
The entire compact unit is about 5" round by 2-1/2" tall.
