1920s Star embroidery floss in glass-front store display case

Fabulous 1920s glass-front store counter display case for STAR 6-strand Embroidery Floss, still packed with over 100 full, unused Star floss skeins (plus a few partial skeins). The skeins have two different labels– I think the longer labels are 1920s or earlier, the 2-piece labels somewhat later, plus 2 skeins of green that look to be from the 1960s.

The case is made of heavy cardboard, although there may be some metal reinforcing inside the glass lid, which is attached by ribbons at the sides. It measures 11-3/4″ wide by 14-1/2″ long and 1-5/8″ high. The condition is very good, very sturdy, with only light wear along the edges and some stains and discolorations on the paper labels.


It’s fairly heavy and will be shipped double-boxed to ensure safe arrival.
