Vintage Carved Ivory Bird Sewing Kit Austria Thread Holder
This is a very unique early 1900's carved bird ivory or bone sewing kit or thread holder from Austria.
It's in lovely condition, and the carved bird with red accents on the lid easily unscrews from the base to reveal a small spool with areas for two colors of thread. There is still some purple thread on the one section.
The base of the piece is hallmarked "Austria". An interesting collectible that measures 3 1/4 inches in height, and is approximately 3/4 of an inch in diameter.
We are unsure as to the actual material used to make this piece, but it is polished and carved, and is a in wonderful condition; with no cracks or crazing.
