Item details

Silvertown - This double-sided art deco vintage sewing needle book is circa 1920-1930s and features a family looking at a painting or through a window at the Alps. Each side reads "The Silvertown" and "Imported Needle Case", also at the bottom it reads "Registered... 49 Needles... Made in Germany". The inside of the book states "Best for all gamily uses!" and "Dosco Product" as well as art deco style designs. There are two embossed foil papers with only four needles remaining. There are also four envelopes with Queen Victoria Silver Ey'd Sharps of various sizes, each still containing needles. This needle book does show quite a bit of wear with creases and some discoloration. When closed, the book measures 6.5"L x 3.75"H.

Bestmaid - made in Occupied Japan c. 1940-1950s. Both sides of the item picture an open scissors next to a spool of thread with "Bestmaid Needles : Nickel Plated Rustproof : 50 Assorted Gold and Silver Eye Needles with Threads" and in the right lower corners it states "Made in Occupied Japan". This needle book appears to be lithographed; however, this isn't my area of expertise so I'm not sure what was used for print. There is a bend to the lower right corner on one side. Inside the needle book reads "Nickel Plated Rustproof Needles" with six embossed foils containing only 17 of the original 50 needles. When closed, the book measures 6"L x 3 1/2"H.

Sewing Susan - This circa 1940-1950, made in Japan, vintage sewing needle book is still vibrant with color. Both side of the book contain a photo of four woman and the title "Sewing Susan". It also reads, "70 assorted gold and silver eye needles with threader." The inside of the book reads "Nickle Plated Rust Proof" and includes six of the seven original embossed foil needle holders. As can be seen in the photos, one foil piece is missing as well as the threader. There are missing needles as well. The book is in good shape with some discoloration and minor creases. When closed, the book measures 5.75"L x 3.5"H.
