Victorian Tartan Ware Thread Holder
A lovely Victorian Tartan Ware thread holder. The clan/pattern name is ‘McLowe’. This lidded thread holder has the KC added sticker with the recommended type of thread to re-order.
Measurements: 2 1/4 inches in diameter and 2 1/2 inches high. Condition: very minor loss of black to the base rim.
The rim of the lid has some minor loss to the paper cover. This very nice tartanware item has a ball of string/thread that may be the type that the owner used. The tread is so fine I am guessing this may have been used in lace making. The tartan thread holder could be used, added to a collection and displays beautifully.
