One Dozen Dress Makers Reproduction Straight Pins


A necessity for any sewing basket. These are simple strong 1 and 1/4" long straight sewing pins in a packet of one dozen. These pins are reproduction tinned (whited) brass pins with wound and applied heads in period wrapper depicting the emblem of the Worshipful Company of Pinmakers, London c. 1770. The fineness and strength are in correlation to not only original pins, but also the period definition in relation to best materials available, strength of wire, construction, sharpness, and purest tin used in the finish. In London's The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, of 1766 in a theft trial the hearings recorded a parcel that went missing. There was "a parcel to their waggon, at the King's-arms at Holborn-bridge, to go to Mrs. Holmes at Watford, that contained tapes, pins, thimbles, and quality-bindings."

Made in the USA.
