I have collected vintage linens for many, many years and I have never seen another set like this item that I am listing! It has been a part of my collection for years, mostly because it is so well done and is very unusual.

The small item is obviously for matches since it has “Matches” embroidered on the front flap and has matches as the lines on a tic-tac-toe game (that by the way is a tie). It has a small loop at top for hanging. The pocket portion measures 4 ¼” x 3 1/8”, measures 6 ¼” from loop to bottom.

The next piece is a ball of string holder -- she has an opening in the center of her mouth to pull the string through -- with an opening at the top with a string that goes through front and back at top and has a knot at top that allows for limited opening and is also for hanging. She measures 7 ½” wide (at widest) and 9” long (at longest).

Both pieces are in new, unused condition and really are super cute!
