This is a most appealing pair of matching gilt silk winders which would likely have come from a Palais Royal box or exclusive smaller sewing set. They are in snowflake-shape with six lobes which are further decorated on one side and plain on the back. One of the winders has a small visible indentation near the centre on the front, and another on the back. The second is in very good condition for age. These would be lovely items to add to an appropriate Palais Royal-style box as the snowflake winders are often absent, and it is rare to find a matching pair. Diameter of each is 1 ins (2.5cm). Combined weight 4 grams.
