Item details

A lovely wooden needlework or sewing box filled to the brim with a vintage assortment of all English sewing paraphernalia - which was essential for the seamstress of yesteryear.

Includes here:

1). Packs of Newey's fasteners

2).Pack of Pikaby snap fasteners

3). A leather pouch with the words. "One darned hole after another''

4). Pair of scissors made in England

5). Old yarn on Lisle card

6). Bone tool stamped 'Brady and Martin Newcastle-upon-Tyne'

7). Old rare tape measure from five to twelve inches and every quarter inch in-between: for measuring ladies' wrists when making gloves.

8). Ostocalcium medicine tablets tin (empty).

9). Pretty wooden case with scissors and lace decor under glass on the lid.

One ancient pack of 'Newey's Imperial Spring Hooks and Eyes' has written on the back:

Owing to Government restrictions with regards to the use of metal.....

Followed by a lengthy explanation.

Wonderful! All that writing for a tiny item.

All the contents of the box are old. The packs are incomplete yet clearly state the manufacturers name and some have many unused items still on.

The scissors state Made in England.

The glove measuring tape is very rare as is the tin box included here for Calcium Tablets. Perfect for keeping pins in. Or just for reading the detailed description and quaint words! In great and clear condition too.

The wooden sewing box measures 7" x 4.5"

Everything will be sent by tracked mail or Royal Mail Signed.
