Antique Cased Sterling Silver Sewing Set

English * Hallmarked 1900-01

This nice little set is in a case lined with the original emerald green satin and velvet. The fitted interior contains a sterling silver crochet hook, scissors, stiletto and thimble. The crochet hook and stiletto have English sterling hallmarks for Birmingham 1900. The thimble and scissors have Birmingham 1901 hallmarks. Thimble maker James Swann has his mark on the thimble and the other pieces are by Adie & Lovekin. Most English silversmiths didn't have the machinery to make thimbles and bought them from someone like Swann for their sewing boxes. It's about an American size 7 and is in excellent condition with no holes, repairs or other damage. 

The ornate scissors have tight blades and intact points and cut pretty well. They are 4 1/4" long and the steel blades are stamped "Sheffield". The silver on all of the tools is in excellent condition with no dents or repairs. The case is nice inside and out and measures 8" x 3". It closes well with a flip down brass clasp.

I stand behind everything that I offer and guarantee that it is exactly as presented.
