Peach Rose Trio with Etui Accessories

Out of stock

My trio is hand crafted from a vintage tray cloth, probably worked in the 1930s. I have used the bullion rose embroidery as a feature on each of the elements, including an envelope etui with pincushion/scissor keeper and needle stand. The buttoned etui is lined in cream silk and has a shell button and a twisted cord closure.

It will be supplied boxed with three gold-plated needles.

The trio measures up as follows:

  • The Etui is 5in (13cm) square when closed.
  • Needle stand is 8in (20.5cm).
  • Pincushion/scissor keeper is 2.75in (7cm).

The story of this little treasure

One of my favourite pastimes is searching through bags and boxes of old linens and old embroideries, often in charity shops, at fairs and in brocante markets. I am taken back to my youth where the iron-on transfer was king, and lazy daisy stitch was queen! These early treasures are often thrown away or find their way to charity shops or jumble sales. I love to find another used for them and my friends have been the recipient of pincushions or needle books made from one of my finds.
