Compact and neat, there is so much to love about this little sewing set.
First, there is the case which is made from cream coloured celluloid and moulded front and back with the shape of the scissors and thimble it holds inside. It is hinged, and is opened by sliding a fingernail between the two edges. ‘Germany’ is imprinted on one side.
Inside, the scissors and thimble nestle in their moulded recesses.
The scissors measure 2 ½ inches long. They have gold or brass plated handles and steel blades. The thimble, ¾ of an inch high, is similarly plated.
Case measures 3 ½ inches long.
Condition: generally in very nice antique condition with some marks and other minor flaws commensurate with age.
