This little sewing implement is called an emery: steel needles and pins could be stuck into the velvet covered ends to be cleaned and sharpened. Made in Scotland circa 1870 the emery is in very good used condition with two tight splits on the tartan areas and minor losses to the velvet material. It measures 2-7/8 inches in circumference and 1-1/2 inches in length.
This small tartan egg is complete, with an interior spindle to hold threads and needles, including the cap for the needle chamber. It is in gently used condition, with minor scuffing and tartan loss and a small split in the chamber cap, which can be seen in the photos. Paper printed with the Sinclair tartan was carefully applied to form a blue six-pointed star at the broad end of the egg and a green six-pointed star at the pointed end...
This 6-3/4 inch tartan rule is in excellent condition except for missing its black label to identify the tartan - my best research picks Royal Stewart. It was made in Scotland in the last quarter of the 19th century (circa 1880), and its function would be to roll over blotted ink (rather than to measure); also it could be used to draw a short straight line. This is one solid piece of sycamore wood covered in the printed tartan paper.
An ironstone mold made in England by Minton in the 1800's, this size used for individual aspic novelties rather than for steamed puddings. In addition to the impressed Minton mark there is an impressed number mark (939?). The decorative motif is a quatrefoil or four-leaf clover. The mold is in good condition with a tight hairline. It measures about 1-3/4 inches in height and 3-1/8 by 2-1/8 inches across the top.
An ironstone mold made in England in the late 1800's or early 1900's that was used for steamed puddings.

It is a heavyweight ironstone ceramic, indicating its date is late Victorian. The condition is excellent with no damage. The mold measures 4-1/4 inches in height and 6-1/2 by 5-5/8 inches across the top.
