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. The piece was made in Scotland circa 1860 and measures 4-1/4 inches in circumference and 2-1/4 inches in length.

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 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.

A cast iron doorstop of a cottage style house with climbing roses, shrubs and lawn. The details of the casting are sharp and the original paint is mostly intact.

Measurements are about nine inches wide, six inches high to the top of the chimney, and 1-7/8 inches deep.

Petal-shaped fluting continues up the sides (down on the finished pudding or jelly) which would produce a very pleasing shape. The mold is marked with the Davenport name and anchor, used until circa 1860, with the impressed number 43. There is light discoloration from use but no chips, cracks or crazing.

The blunt edges and rounded tip suggest this would be more effective as a page turner rather than for opening letters - but page turners I've owned previously were larger. The fern fronds and ivy leaves printed on sycamore wood are clear and crisp. There is very light wear along the edges but otherwise the condition is excellent. Made in Scotland circa 1870 this piece measures 8-3/4 inches in length.

An ironstone mold made in England circa 1860 with the unusual motif of an apple surrounded by leaves. When set in this mold the jelly or aspic would display the fruit at its top. The base is flat but there is no standing rim indicating this mold is fairly early and was not intended for cooked puddings. Measurements are 5 by 4 inches across the top and not quite 3 inches in height. The mold is in excellent condition with no flaws or signs of wear.
