Heart & Crown Workbox Weight

Out of stock

A very real treasure! This Workbox Weight has been created using unbleached Cashel linen and I have added the last of my embroidered slips, which probably dates from the 17th century. I cannot prove the date of the eyelet stitching, but I have it on good authority that this is the case. Last month I offered a smaller version which was snapped up in seconds! I love the thought of little treasures like this being used and enjoyed.

The eyelets on the slip are on fine linen, and I have carefully (invisibly!) attached the antique stitching to the modern linen.

With three shell buttons, three pearl pins and a dry rice filling, this is just perfect for your worktable. The Workbox Weight measures 4 x 3.5in (10 x 9cm).

The story of this little treasure

The story of this little treasure is that this small and very damaged scrap was found in Martin Ex Antique Dealers in Amsterdam many years ago. I was really not sure what to do with it but clearly, I couldn’t leave it behind! As a rule, I do not cut up antique stitching, but this really was just a torn scrap and found in the odds and end box.
