In Victoria times women would gather to do their sewing in a social setting. This created the need for a small portable sewing kit. This Sewing Compendium is a re-creation of such a kit. It has Ra pewter bobbin with sections for winding two different threads. This bobbin also holds two needles. A cute little mouse sits on its top. A small pewter thimble rests on the cobalt blue glass bottle. All is held in place by a pewter collar in a “Forest of Flowers” design. 2/3/8″ tall, 3/4″ diameter. Imported from England.
