A Group of Victorian Sewing Items
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, where as 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 group of sewing items consists of: a pair of steel scissors in a leather sheath, a steel thimble, a large roll of thread 6 x pin and needle cases, and a mother of pearl pin cushion.
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. The mother of pearl pin cushion is in good condition.
Dimensions: scissors 11cm x 4cm
