Isn't this amazing?

I bought this gorgeous box of thread 10+ years ago from a woman whose Aunt had made salesman sample ballgowns in the 20's and 30's. Essentially dolls in miniature versions of elaborate dresses.

This box of thread was given to her Aunt as a Christmas gift one year. 40 gorgeous spools of thread in bright candy colors and a variety of metallics. Many unused. Excellent condition.

How badly do I wish I had retained more of the story she told me?

I have done many many searches trying to identify this more clearly to no avail (if anyone out there knows more of the story please send me a note!).

If shipping is less than what I've guestimated- I will refund the difference.

Thank you for looking!
