Extensive Antique French Silver Sewing Set /scissors/thimble/needle Case * C1900:
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.
I stand behind everything that I offer and guarantee that it is exactly as presented.
