Super neat celluloid hanky box that has been a part of my vintage handkerchief collection for some time! The box is in wonderful condition – it has a small chip on one corner, interior lining has no holes or rips and appears to be original. Box measures 5 3/8” x 5 3/8” and is 2 ½” tall. Very nice collectible!
Neat little pincushion that is similar to one shown on page 20 of “Sewing Tools and Trinkets” by Helen Thompson! The one in book shows a bird on a whale’s tale while this one is a cute brown owl perched on a turtle’s head. Made of glass and in very good condition...
This Cardinal China line is so cute and this measuring spoon holder is no exception! Measures 4 ¾” tall, he’s yellow and green, and has in-mold “#1 Measure Boy” on front. As often happens, he has lost his measuring spoons but has no evidence of “use” – no chips, no cracks, no crazing! Neat item.
Lovely colors on these Sunburst aluminum tumblers! There are 8 in listing and they store/display nicely in their white wire holder. Tumbler colors are: blue, fuchsia, gold, silver, red, yellow, and there are 2 green ones with slight difference in color. Glasses measure 4 ¾” tall, marked Sunburst, and are in wonderful condition with minor “use” evidence. The blue one has minor color loss and a couple pit places inside the bottom. Very pretty aluminum items!!
These little angel musician figurines are so cute! Each measures 2 ½” tall and bottoms are stamped in red “Made in Occupied Japan”. Adorable additions to any collection!
This listing has a pair of pretty hankies with “B” monogram! Both handkerchiefs are white – one has blue border with monogram in blue, the other is pink border with pink monogram. These hankies have never been used – I removed one from their plastic packages so you could see they are nice, clean, and white! The plastic covers protected them well as evidenced by their yellowing while the hankies remained in pristine condition. The packages have “Fur dre’ Darme, W, 100% Baumwolle”...
This listing has three white hankies with colorful embroidery and each has a lace corner! They are in the original box that has some storage evidence but is still pretty with pink flowers on front. Very nice!!
This listing has two sets of lovely hankies still in the original boxes! One has two white hankies with embroidered flowers (pink, yellow), the other has two hankies with a nylon and embroidery accented corner – it also has a pretty little faux pearl necklace on a gold-tone chain. Neat handkerchiefs!
Another lovely hanky listing -- three white hankies with embroidered flowers and a lace corner! They have never been removed from box and have light storage evidence – will be nice and white when gently laundered. The original box for these is colorful with an art deco appearance – neat!
This hanky listing has three white hankies with embroidered flowers and lace corners! They are in the original box and have label “3 ladies handkerchiefs, gift boxed”. Hankies have never been removed from box but need to be gently laundered. Pretty!
Still in the original box, either one of these lovely hankies would be perfect as a wedding hanky! They are white with white embroidery – one has four white roses, the other has four small floral garlands. Both are all cotton, made in Switzerland, and have original DESCO stickers. Pretty!!
Another lovely hanky listing still in the original box! There are two white handkerchiefs with gray stitching and floral design. They are attached to pink paper giving them the appearance of being pink – they’re not, both hankies are white. One has “made in Switzerland” sticker, the other has an “Opalinon” sticker. These hankies have never been removed from box and have storage evidence (white is dingy) – will clean right up when gently laundered. The box is neat too!!
If you collect hankies like I do, you know the original gift boxes are as collectible as the handkerchiefs inside! The box in this listing is exceptionally eye-catching and it holds three lovely hankies – each is white with an embroidered corner – label states “Superior quality combed yarns”. Super nice!
This is another super aluminum listing! This one has the copper color measuring spoon set with the original wall mount hanger. Spoon sizes: tablespoon, teaspoon, ½ teaspoon, and ¼ teaspoon. Set matches our #M1893, measuring cup set and both coordinate beautifully with the Kromex canister set (#M1891) we just listed!
This listing has a 3 piece copper color aluminum measuring cup set with its original wall mount hanger! They are scoop shape – perfect to measure straight from your canisters – sizes are ½ , 1/3, and ¼ cup. Excellent items, very difficult to find!

Excellent condition pigeon figurines made by Howard Pierce! Both pieces have beautiful color shadings and both have Howard Pierce (in black, block letters) on bottoms. One measures 6” long, 4 ½” tall (at tallest), the other is 5 ¾” long, 5” tall (at tallest). They have no chips or cracks – difficult to find items!!
This is without a doubt one of the nicest aluminum canister sets we’ve ever had in inventory! Made by Kromex, canisters are a light copper color with black plastic lids that have center copper color handles. Very, very minor “use” evidence (rubs on bottom, etc). Excellent set!!
Cute little plastic sewing basket made by Hommer Manufacturing Company! Round in shape, lid is clear with in-mold floral pattern, bottom is pink and has in-mold basket weave pattern. Clear plastic interior tray has foam rubber ring (for needle storage) that slips over the thimble holder, tray holds thread, etc. and lifts out for more storage underneath (will hold small scissors, etc). This is a super retro item and is in great condition!
