Another sweet little treasure handmade from the Victorian / early 1900's era. I had mentioned in one of my previous post my love of handmade cloth sewing articles, well here is another delightful handmade piece. The top & bottom egg shaped pieces are cut from cardboard covered in silk ribbon . A narrow ribbon laces down through the center of the spool of the first and then back up through the second spool continuing to the end spool. The thread is held just tight enough inside the "case" but still allowing the spool to turn to unwind the thread. A creative piece probably given as a gift as it is in unused condition.
