Luxury thread winders
Luxury cards for thread storage
These thread cards are in the spirit of the beautiful little winders found in luxury vintage sewing sets. Whether in mother-of-pearl, tortoiseshell or precious woods, there would be a pair of embroidery scissors, a thimble, a bodkin, an awl, sometimes a pen and maybe even a vial containing vinegar water, in case the embroiderer got a hot flush!
As with the cardboard models, there is a tiny slit in this winder: this is not a flaw, but to stop the thread from unwinding.
These reeditions of wooden thread winders are decorated with decalcomanias, as on the collectibles of days gone by. These little sewing objects were very popular at the time and were most often found in souvenir shops.
