Resembling a mushroom with its round, thick cap firmly atop a tall stem, this sewing caddy from the early 1900s is in superb condition, obviously well cared for. It is made of solid oak, in a dark finish that was very fashionable back in that day. Crowned by a neat pin cushion top, the six wooden pegs firmly hold spools of thread on the upper wooden round, with two short pegs rising out of the thick lower stem below. A solid turned lower base is rounded out on top for small implements to be placed, so they cannot fall out.
SIZE is approximately 11 inches tall. The mushroom pincushion is approximately 3 inches wide. The upper wooden shelf is approximately 5 inches across by .75 inch thick, and the lower one is approximately 1.25 inches thick and 6 inches across.
CONDITION is lovely with only the lightest signs of use and no scratches, chips or damage to the wood. The dark finish still shows the attractive oak grain very well. All the thread spool posts are solidly in place and do not wiggle. The tapestry fabric does show some wear and age, but is still very attractive and solidly in place with a ring of decorative tape around its bottom edge, held tightly in place by old upholstery tacks.
IMPORTANT: see our picture of the top "shelf" which can be pushed up on the post, so that a ring of lighter color shows. There is no maker mark on this piece.
We found some correct old wooden thread spools to set it off and gladly include them. This could be a real conversation piece in any vintage sewing collection.
