Description

SKU: 789

A very cute wooden darning egg, complete with a central shaft for holding needles (including the cap), a turned spool that holds thread and an utilitarian thimble.  Top and bottom screw apart with ease.

American sterling silver thimble marked for Stern Bros./Goldsmith Stern. Size 9. No holes and in round.

The wood appears to be something like olive or maple wood but I am no expert on wood.

Egg measures approximately 3.5 cm in length.  Excellent condition.
