A Group of Sewing Items from the Victorian Period
Every household in the 18th, 19th and 20th century would have a sewing basket. The more genteel lady would pass her time with embroidery and needlework, whereas the lady from a lesser household would always be in need of sewing implements to make and repair her family’s clothes, on a regular basis.
This small group consists of: a pair of button hole scissors, a steel thimble, a steel button hook 3 x large bobbins of thread, and a packet of steel pins and 2 x fine sewing needles.
The scissors work well and there are no holes in the thimble, the large bobbins are in good unused condition, there are some faint marks to the needle packets.
Dimensions: scissors 10cm x 4cm
