And sew to sewing

Collecting sewing antiques is a fascinating genre of what was a prime activity of particularity woman until really the mid 20th century.

As a consequence some truly beautiful items and boxes have been made to represent almost every subject known.

Opposite we have some really rare ladies legs scissors some of the are even more risky with pink stockings, bear in mind in Georgian to Victorian time an ankle was not meant to be seen hence ankle boots and long dresses.

Often items were made in precious metals such as gold and silver and bright cut steel as the former too soft for things like needles, really early 17th needles in gold do exist and are sought after.
