"Women derive a pleasure, incomprehensible to the other sex, from the delicate toil of the needle." ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne, Author, The Scarlet Letter
Found at an Oregon antiques flea market, this collection includes an unusual yellow patent leather sewing basket, lined with a floral fabric, with four compartments. Also included are an assortment of vintage buttons, many on their original cards, and a decorative hand embroidered pot holder shaped like a duck.
The basket measures 6" x 6" x 3 1/4" and is in good vintage condition. A few minor scuffs but nothing that distracts from this charming piece.
This set will make a great addition to your vintage sewing collection.

THAT being said, with the exception of our greeting cards, our merchandise is vintage and in some cases antique. In other words, OLD. In other words, most items show some evidence of their age.
All items are inspected carefully prior to listing, and we photograph and describe flaws and imperfections as accurately as we can. However, Etsy only allows us to post five photographs, which sometimes is not enough to capture every detail.
If you are uncertain about an item, PLEASE ask for additional information and/or photographs prior to purchasing.
