This brilliantly designed little sewing kit in cute metal tube is perfect for keeping in one's bag or suitcase to mend a button or hem on the go. The metal post features two spools for thread and holds needles inside of it, with an end cap to keep them safe, then a thimble fits perfectly over the the top--and all fits snugly inside the tube-like case. Kits like this were often produced as advertising give aways--this one is stamped "Fred M. Page Cotton and Paper Specialties, West Lynn, Mass."
Circa 1950s and in great condition, with light wear and aging to the metal. The lid fits tight. 2 1/4" long c 3/4" diameter.
