Silk winders and sewing items (SEW)



The people producing the gaming counters in Canton needed to diversify into other areas when orders for counters started to slow down in around 1840. One of the things they produced was sewing equipment - especially silk winders. You will see all the skills and techniques from gaming counters in evidence here.

There is no extra charge for any of the items for posting by Recorded Delivery (UK) or INTERNATIONAL SIGNED-FOR worldwide.
