These are lovely old holders for cotton reels etc. An ideal way to keep your cotton organised. They were made in a variety of colours and at the moment I have them in bright yellow and red.

They hold 5 reels and the cotton comes out of a small slot next to each reel. The lid is held on by a little catch to make sure the reels all stay safe. In the centre of the holder is a place to keep your pins and needles. Each holder has 2 old cotton reels inside and still have the original thimble on the top.

They were made in the 50's and 60's and I remember my mother having one in blue when I was young. They do have a registered design number on the base 29003/50 but this does not fit into the normal design number sequencing and I presume the 50 refers to 1950.

Price £24.00 each.
Postage & packing for UK £3.50.
