A wooden Tartan Ware crochet set with eight hooks and a universal handle. c 1840
The tartan is 'Stewart Royal' and is titled in gold on black on the box. Inside the lid it also has the retailer's details- 'Lund Fleet St. London'.
The eight hooks and bone handle sit in separate compartments. The lid has an unusual wooden hinge mechanism.
The tartan finish is in excellent condition and the hinge works properly. One hook is longer than the others but fits that compartment to the right height.
