mid-19th century Sail Makerís Ditty Bag with ORIGINAL CONTENT

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

A wonderful remnant of the heyday of sale, one has to be impressed with just how this mid 1800s sailmakerís artifact survives intact with a full complement of craft essential components such as binding and stitching lace of varying material and gauge , hemp and cotton cord, a small paper bound skein of raw cotton yarn, and an interesting mix of odd job remnants such as leather drum tugs, period recovered grommets for re-use, bees wax for treating lacing and thread, even a leather cap visor ready for application. Tools of the craft of sail making and repair, include a small measuring scale, a lignum vitae seam rubber, a heavy hand stitched roping palm, two stitching palms, a heavy 6 inch needle and a splicing and seam knife maker marked IBBOTSON GLOBE WORKS. (closed in 1845) All best described by our photo illustrations it is important to note that the bag and content are period original one to another and as found after decades of Maine sea coast, attic storage. A remarkable remnant of the mid-19th century artificer.
