Estate Find! Interesting - you have to ask yourself "what were they thinking?" 150 year commemorative by the Coats & Clark Thread Company (dated on reverse) - smoky glass ashtray? Trinket dish? At any rate, I don't believe it has ever been used. Neat color drawings on the front - detailed recounting of The Story of Thread on the reverse. Measures about 9" by 7" - no chips/cracks or condition issues. A really unique sewing collectible. I found a couple of these on-line, but they were rather "chewed up" - but this one was in the best condition.
