Once upon a time before the modern day advent of plastics and other alloys, bone was the staple from which any number of decorative or utilitarian smalls were cut, shaved and filed to shape, frequently as a gift to a loved one or friend. Rings, pendants and assorted carved objects of the imagination called whimseys were often an object of the attention of a country craftsman squinting in the lantern light while winter winds howled at the night door. Sewing implements as are offered here offered many an evening’s pastime to the maker and a durable token of affection to the recipient. More difficult to find now there was a time not so long ago when these little decorative whimseys and utilitarian tokens were commonly found in attic stored antique sewing baskets, keepsake thread or candy boxes. Saved away among relics of the family attic, their stories, as unique as their shape and origin, long since lost in time. This little grouping of four antique sewing tools (illustrated here with a quarter for size comparison) will offer an attractive example of such long ago crafted implements and will display well in any antique sewing implement grouping or Civil War winter camp or personal item collection. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !
