Antique Wood Darner, 6 Inches Length, Light Tan Color, B
Wonderful antique all wood darner in a blond wood or light tan color. Measures about 6 inches long, 1 1/2 inches wide and 1 5/8 inches in depth. We don't know what type of wood this vintage darner is made of. It looks to have been made in two pieces, one for the handle and one for the darner rounded end from the visible line where the handle and darner part meet (they are firmly attached to each other but if you hold the bottom still you can rotate the handle without moving the bottom egg shaped piece). Please note that we have shown 5 images shot with two different camera lighting settings. We had trouble showing details of this piece accurately due to the camera lighting reflection off the light colored wood surface which is coated with a reflective clear shiny varnish. The first image shot in stronger lighting best reflects the true light coloring to this darner. Terrific vintage used condition with no major flaws -- no large chips, cracks, pieces missing -- but lots of surface wear/use wear evident on the egg end with the surface varnish here having been worn away. There is surface wear via many small use scratches, rubbed spots, tiny surface nicks (not large chips), etc. throughout the piece (egg end and along the handle, particularly near top). We don't see any cracks but the wood does have natural lines and striations to it so perhaps there may be some tiny lines we are missing as just part of the natural wood, we're not sure. There is a small hole at the top end of the handle so perhaps someone once had a screw/ring attached here for hanging, we don't know. Regardless, there is nothing here to worry about, all this adds to the believeability of the age and use of this old piece. A nice addition to any collection of sock darners, vintage sewing items or sewing collectibles, or one of great old wooden pieces. Please note that we have many other sewing, wood and kitchen items listed separately for sale. If you wish to purchase more than one, please e-mail us before placing the order since the shipping information has been inputted for a purchase of just one and will not calculate the savings you would get when purchasing more than one shipped together in the same package (we will need to handle this for you).

Vintage oak spool rack with wood spools. This attractive rack is freestanding or can be hung on a wall. It looks pretty old; age est: 1920's, Mission Oak style. It stands 19 tall x 15 wide x 4 deep. It has 2 flaws; one of the spool dowels is missing; and one is broken. I replaced the one that was missing and you canot tell when spool is on it. It could be stained to match the rack. The one that is broken off is on the bottom row, see pic #5; it would have to be removed and replaced, but you will need to gouge it out of there or just glue a wood spool over it. It displays fine. Cool item for a sewing, hobby, crafts room. The wood spools are quite old; some are J & P Coats, Belding Corticelli, Coats & Clarks, Sears, John Clark Mile-End, Star Twist, etc.

The 6 wooden thread spools are vintage also. Cuties for your crafts room display shelf! 2/12rtmc+3/12

1962 Coats & Clark 150th Anniversary Decorated Glass Tray
Attractive glass tray or dish with colorful paint or enamel distributed by Coats Story of Thread along with line drawings on the bottomside. This is where they also placed the Coats smoke glass , so you can see through to the decorations on each side. The rectangular shape actually dips in slightly on the middle of each side to add interest, and curves up slightly from the underpart where it sits to create a slightly flared effect. We've provided several images and close-ups...please note that the white hot spots are lighting reflection from the camera on the glossy surface. Very nice overall condition, but not mint. There is a tiny chip on the underside and side edge near the point in two of the corners, but you don't see these from the topside. There are also a number of tiny scratches, rubbed marks, dots, etc. -- but nothing major that really jumps out at you when you look at the piece on a table. Coloring is still all bright and pretty. A highly usable piece which would make an interesting addition to any collection of vintage sewing items, or a nice gift for anyone who likes to sew or is a seamstress or tailor.

It is shown in one of the books on vintage metalware.

Vintage wooden shoe mold. 9.25 inch long shoe mold with metal bottom. It has some old paint remnants on it, and it makes for a very ecclectic display piece.

These also look very cute hand-painted!
