Antique / Vintage Box - 1920s Linen Lace Thread - 7 Skeins

Antique/vintage box containing SEVEN skeins of pure linen thread for lace work
Manufactured by W. & J. Knox Ltd of Kilbirnie, Scotland
The box and each skein band are printed with the manufacturer's details
Probably dating from the 1920s or thereabouts (could be slightly earlier or later)

The colour is marked on the box as 'grey' but it is actually an ecru-type shade

The box measures approx. 8.5" x 2" x 1.25" (approx. 21.5cm x 5.5cm x 3cm)
Each skein mesures approx. 8" or 20cm in length and weighs approx. 5g (approx. 0.18oz)

In good condition. There is some damage to the box - a few dark spots, a split along one of the corners edges (approx. 3/4") and scuffing to the corners. The linen skeins are in excellent unused condition, having been protected by the box all these years. The box also has a couple of ink annotations (prices)

A wonderful little sewing collectible! A rare find

This item will be double-boxed to protect it in transit

Scissors not included
