Two Georgian leather and card thread winders. c 1800


Two very early thread winders from a Georgian work box. The card is covered in a fine leather and trimmed with gilt paper. One is red and the other red on one side and green on the other.  c1800

The star shaped one measures 6 cm in diameter
The oblong  4 x 3.5 cm

Very unusual.

Condition- some of the gilt paper edging is lost and there are a few light creases in the leather where the glue has lost adhesion but no breaks.
