Antique Haberdashery Cotton Thread Samples

Antique Haberdashery Cotton Thread Samples
£3.95 1 Available
Love this


There are 10 Antique cotton sewing thread samples in this unique set. They are over a 100 years old found in an old haberdashery shop drawer and were used to show customers what colour thread was available to order. The threads are sandwiched between paper and are in lovely autumn colours.

The larger circle has numbers written on it, the semi circle paper are plain. They do show time worn marks and the paper has turned a wonderful creamy colour but for their age are in very good condition.

They come complete with a very old small rusty paper clip.

I think they are a wonderful thing to own as a piece of sewing history but could be incorporated in sewing themed mixed media or collage projects.

The circle measures 3 cms in diameter.

Please see my other vintage sewing items listed.

Comes from a smoke free home.
