Junior Miss!

Continuing with children's sewing collecting theme,
I have this very simple, but sweet Junior Miss
Sewing Set - A Berwick Toy
Made in England

The contents show six different colours of embroidery
thread, two cards of mending thread (Glista "Mendarn"
Mending - Made in England), packet of
needles (The "Floral" packet Finest Quality
Needles - English Made), and red thimble.

I just love the graphics on the lid of this set. The seated
young girl is sewing the hem of a doll's yellow dress,
the kneeling young girl is playing with a sweet doll, there
is a cane sewing basket on the floor, a ball
of wool in front of the basket, and the dog has a
giant red thimble on his head!
There is no date but it is numbered as
"No.1". I have to guess yet again,
possibly 40's - 50's.

More sets to follow!

Those sets are absolutely adorable as are the one in the previous post!! Now, I'll have to keep my eye out for them.

I think they are definitely worth looking for. If we can find these and save them from any further damage or any loss of contents, then their "story" is continued in both vintage sewing and toy history.
