Miniature Figural Sewing Kit Needle Case Girl w Thimble Hat Vintage
This circa 1930's vintage miniature figural sewing kit - needle case is a girl with a tall red thimble hat. There are 3 tiny connected spools inside and a needle... just as she was when I purchased her from an estate sale about 30 years ago. Painted area shows hair, an eye with eyebrow, lips and there's a soft blush of pink on one side of the head. I don't know if this is artistic license or if one eye has worn away with years of use. That, and the thimble hat, which is almost as tall as she is, gives her a very whimsical look. The kit is 2" tall... the girl is slightly over 1 inch; hat is slightly under 1 inch. Both are some type of vintage plastic... (not bakelite; I've tested it). There is some wear and abrasions on part of the ridged area on the side of the thimble. Some light smudges from long ago handling. I've never used it... it has just been sitting in my case of small nifty things since I bought it back in the 70's, but I never tried to clean it.
