Hello and welcome to my auction! Here we have a very rare and unique vintage sewing kit. It was made in France by Ariane Sartel probably 1930's or 1940's. On the wrappers and bobbins it says "Ariane Sartel Cotton Thread 75m cotton Images de France" It consists of 10 threaded bobbins with plastic or bakelite heads on them. And all the ladies are wearing traditional French Hats!!! Cute! Some of them have never been unwrapped! They all are nested in a heavy metal stand which has a center cap that can be removed and used for storage. It is bronze in color. There are no markings on the stand. I have seen other examples of these on French Ebay, but never here. They are very desirable, especially in such condition (one of the ladies heads is partially damaged...someone chipped off part of her hat. You can see her on the far left in the picture with all of them). This would make a great addition to anyone's sewing collection. A wonderful conversation and display piece! It stands 4 1/2" tall and 2 1/2" round. Any questions? Please ask! Enjoy!
