Edwardian Sewing Case Coffin Shape Thread Tools Leather Ribbon

posted in: Antiques News | 0

Here’s an engaging needle case from the early 1900’s Edwardian era.  The case, in a coffin shape, is made of a tan suede leather edged with a gray satin ribbon.  A shield on the lid, outlined in ribbon, would have held a small pair of sewing scissors.

Untying the lid, the inside is divided into two compartments.  Four graduated wooden spools of white thread and a larger one of black, fit snuggly together in the one compartment.  The other compartment holds the metal thimble and tiny ribbon bag of emery.  A round cushion pincushion separates the two compartments.  The inside is lined in a pink moire water taffeta ribbon.
