Silset5

Large Antique Silver Sewing Set

French * Circa 1900

This set of French silver sewing tools is unusually extensive. The silver tools include two pairs of scissors, a thimble, needlecase, stiletto, crochet hook and bodkin. All are marked with the French boar's head hallmarks used in Paris for 800/1000 pure silver. A scrolling floral design is on all of the tools (except the bodkin) and I think the tools are original to the case.

The silver on all of the tools is in excellent condition with no dents or damage. Both pairs of scissors have tight blades, intact points and cut beautifully to the tips. Because of this, it would be a great set to actually use. The thimble has no holes or repairs and it's about an American size 8 (15 mm diameter opening). The case closes well with a flip down brass clasp and it has strong hinges.The interior is lined with the original purple velvet. It measures 7 1/2" by 4".Postage includes Registered shipping for non US addresses and insured shipping within the US.
