Description

This finely detailed carved bone-look bodkin would look the part in a Georgian, Victorian or Edwardian dolls house or miniature scene.

The bodkin was an essential part of a lady's sewing kit through the 1800s and in the early 1900s. and was commonly made from carved bone. I have created my miniature bodkins from polymer clay, realistically detailed with fine darker lines and lustre without shine.

Each order consists of one bodkin only, and does not include any other furniture or accessories shown in the photos.

Please select from
- small 1/2" (1.2cm)
-large 5/8" (1.5cm)

---international customers please note, carefully and securely packaged, this item ships as a "letter", minimizing your postage costs---

Perfect for historical (particularly colonial) dolls houses and miniature scenes, also for moderns if your little people collect antiques!

These items are individually handcrafted, so each item will vary slightly.

This is a collector's item, not a toy. It is not intended for children.

All goods are packaged with great care and posted in perfect condition. However, I take no responsibility for damage or losses that occur in the postal system.

I keep a photographic record of all goods I post, and can forward you a copy of these if that is helpful to you in any dispute with your postal service.

Shipping policies

All items are shipped by Australia Post airmail, and my shipping charge is calculated to recover the cost of the packing materials and the postage.

I have intentionally designed and made all my items to ensure that, with careful and secure packaging, they will fit though a 2cm slot, so will be considered a “letter” by Australia Post. This minimizes postage costs, particularly for overseas customers. It may look like a small parcel to you, but Australia Post classifies it as a letter.

Shipping is combined, that is, if you order several item in the same order (at the same time), I can securely arrange as many of them that will fit side by side in the same “letter” for one low postage cost. I may be able to fit up to twelve of the small items such as food and candlesticks in one. For larger items such as bags, possibly only three or four would fit. In the case of you ordering more than this I will ship as two separate “letters”, this is still cheaper than a small “package” in the Australia Post system. I will advise you as to the extra postage cost in this case.

Items are shipped within three business days of cleared payment, barring unforeseen circumstances. In the unlikely event of an order being delayed, I will try to contact you by convo.

Custom orders may take longer, this will be determined when communicating with you about the details of your custom order.

How long your order takes to reach you depends on the local post service in your country, and also whether it is delayed by the customs service in your country. Unfortunately this is not something I can predict. . .

If you require a postal tracking number, please let me know and I will investigate how much this will cost you and let you know.

Additional policies

All my items are intended for adult collectors of miniatures. They are not toys and are not suitable for children.
I make all of my items by hand, and do not use moulds. So each item will differ slightly, but the quality will be the same. Keep in mind that colours you see on your screen are influenced by your own computer/ipad etc. I take all my photos in natural light and check that the colours are faithfully represented on my screen, but you may experience some variation from your machine.
