Description
This lovely little Etui made from tin holds within seven spools of cotton. The Etui is German and I believe would date to circa 1900 as the globe shows The Congo State which was annexed in 1908. The central spool is longer than the others and has a little brass cap where I imagine pins and needles were to be stored. The base of the globe is flat allowing it to sit securely on a surface.

condition

This little sewing set is in good condition. The two halves of the globe still fit well together, opening and closing with ease. There is a small dent to the tin over 'South America'. I believe one the spools not to be original as it is a different shape to the others, but all the spools fit securely to their little prongs.
