Vintage blown glass sock darner / darning egg
This vintage blown glass darning egg is what I would call an antique fuchsia shade of purple. It is hollow, made of solid thick glass.
There are no markings on the piece and its precise age is unknown.
This piece measures approx 5 1/2" long.
Condition: It is without chips, cracks, nicks or dings. The glass around the blow hole opening is rough but this is a characteristic of the way the piece was made.
A nice old piece - nice authentic character. Should be a nice addition to collection of vintage sewing accessories.
We have many other darning eggs up this week --- happy to combine shipping!

Domestic and International Shipping
Unless we notify you of otherwise, we typically ship within two business days of receipt of payment.
We prefer to ship via USPS Priority Mail. USPS Parcel Post and USPS Media Mail can be a bit unpredictable and can take up to three weeks to arrive. We are not responsbile for shipping times once an item enters the postal system. We track all domestic orders and do not offer refunds for lost packages.
Tracking information is available for Priority Mail International. For the more economical First Class Mail International, tracking information is NOT available and we only ship via this method once per week. A package is not our responsibility once it has entered the postal system. We do not offer refunds for lost packages.
All items are WELL packaged. Methods include: bubble-mailers with cardboard inserts to make a package rigid, Jiffy Rigi stiff mailers, well-padded and taped boxes. Most magazines are encased in protective sleeves. We've been known to get quite creative in ensuring our items arrive safely.
Our shipping prices include a reasonable handling charge which helps us cover our time, mailing supplies and transaction fees. We do not condone the practice of profiteering from this charge.
