Item details

Do you Darn?

Even if you don't, these are wonderful small collectible items.

Used for mending holes in socks, etc. They can come in a variety of styles, colors, and designs. They always feel wonderful in your hand.

This is a fun one--very "industrial" with its removable metal "collar." This component has a 1909 patent date on it.
I believe that it was used to secure the fabric of the mended piece, over the surface of the egg.

Lovely black paint--beautiful ebony color.
Fluted turned handle.
See photos for condition and detail!

Piece measures 4.5" tall x 2" in diameter.

These are lovely in a bowl or vase, grouped. In a shadowbox with other vintage notions. Or gift it to your favorite seamstress or tailor.

Or, heck--use it as a darning egg. Make Do and Mend!

And don't forget kids! I always combine shipping on multiples purchases.
