This lavish book presents the collector with a wide variety of these tools and trinkets, from the ordinary to the elegant, with focus on tools from the nineteenth and twentieth century. The exquisite photography features over 1,200 items, including needles, thimbles, chatelaines, sewing kits, scissors, rulers, darners, thread holders, sewing machines, and more. Historical information, material, date, country of origin, and a current collector value is given for each item. There's also a helpful glossary, bibliography, and index.
