Vintage 1940s sewing charm with spool of thread, scissors, and needle on a sterling chain. This delightful charm has wonderful features: a spool of thread (or bobbin) with a hinged lid that open and closes, and can hold a memento inside; and a pair of hinged, opening and closing scissors! A "needle" is attached with black thread. The entire piece hangs from a newer, 18" chain, marked Sterling. The spool is not marked for silver but has been tested. The spool measures about 1/2" by 3/8", the scissors are 5/8", and the needle is 3/8". Only the spool and chain are sterling silver.
