This beautiful round metal tin contains 16 ball spring safety pins. The ball on these pins replaces the coil so it doesn't catch on fabrics. The box is covered with a round label representing a vintage sewing lesson scene. Another label on the back indicates the contents.
Pins – size 1 3/16" or 30mm long
Box – diameter is 4.7 cm x 1.8 cm tall. It opens by a small key on the side, just like a tin of shoe polish.
Sajou produces haberdashery items made in France to the highest standards (in some cases even produced on the original old machinery). Perfect for gifts and collectors, and for those of you unable to resist a quality that is seldom found in today's mass produced haberdashery products. Sajou was created in 1828 by Jaques- Simon Sajou, selling haberdashery for embroidery, tapestry, lace, crochet and weaving.
