This stunning, ornate holder was produced in France during the 19th century. This beautiful item is of the highest quality, the gilding is so opulent, it has a real wow factor. Although this antique holder currently stores a ball of twine, it could store wool, thread, ribbon for an artists crafting, the possibilities are many.
The holder dates to circa 1890 to 1900 and is a real eye catcher. The exterior features decorative bows and wreaths above an unusual green leather lining. The lid features a floral wreath pattern with intertwined bows above a green leather base. Attached to the side is a stunning little velvet lined case to hold the original, quality steel and gilt scissors (a rare treat to have the original scissors). The lid opens to reveal an inner compartment for storing spools or balls of string.
This is one of favourite items, the perfect desk accessory or gift for anyone with a passion for knitting, crochet, sewing, gardening etc.

Condition: Good, the gilding is a super buttery coloring. There are 3 very minor cracks to interior metal rim of lid and age dulling/ fading to the leather.
