Measurements: 3" diameter (not including tail) x 3" tall
Handmade, homemade - possibly a "make do" when a favorite china figurine was damaged.
Excellent, unfaded velvet - pink and green - with green embroidery - and an attached matching sewing strawberry. The tail is black velvet, appropriate for the grey and black coloration of the china dog head.
Hand painted dog head with only a bit of the black paint missing to the tips of the ears and the top of the nose...
Measurements: 7/8" x 1 1/4" x 1"
According to the estate, this was a souvenir of a trip to Italy back in the late 1950's.
Made of punched brass plated metal backed with black glove leather - in the form of a treasure chest.
The sewing accessories within are a thimble, tiny spool with 2 colors of thread, a needle and safety pin.
No damages. Only the red thread appears to have been used.
The thimble photographed in unpolished condition.
This is a marked 800 silver thimble with vermeil banding and 6 turquoise (glass??) cabochon stones. Suitable size for an adult.
No holes or other damages. VERY beautiful and usable.
****A second thimble is also available - but with coral (glass??) stones.
