Miniature wooden bobbins
These miniature wooden spools are the same shape as those used in days gone by for gloving thread. As indicated in the name, this fine strong thread was used for sewing and repairing gloves. In my collection of vintage haberdashery, I have boxes full of these small bobbins, generally in boxes of 12, sometimes unicolour, sometimes in beautiful assortments. There were many thread brands: Thiriez, Au Louis d’Or, À la Main, Au Sanglier… We offer these spools with a wide array of different labels, to reflect the diversity that existed in the good old days.
