Title: A Rare Fine Bobbin Lace Making Pillow Box, Lacemaker Ball, Cushion
Date/Period: 1728


A and Rare Fine Bobbin Lace Making Pillow Box, Lacemaker Ball, Cushion, entire view 1

Measurement: Height: 6"; diameter: 10"

Material: Eastern White Pine [pinus strobus] by analysis: Alden Identification Service
Linen, rosehead nails and brass tacks.

Condition: Fine original condition; short shrinkage crack, one wire hinge needs to
be closed which we will do. Wonderful original surface, great patina.

Additional Information: The box is likely cooper made…staves joined to full coverage
carved end panels by beautiful rosehead nails. The half round door is initialed “CC” and
dated “1728”, underside of door initialed “BG” …likely a second owner. Both the
turnbuckle latch and door pull are carved. The drum is upholstered in homespun linen
with edges strengthened and decorated with green twill binding tape secured with brass
tacks. Within the interior was stored the workers various instruments and supplies: pins,
scissors, thread, and bobbins. The pillow was set upon the knees allowing the
lacemaker to work her craft on the padded cylinder. A rare survivor…

The making of bobbin lace required a means of attaching multiple threads; bobbin lace
is made from a number of threads attached by pins to a cushion/pillow, each thread
being wound on a small bobbin. The design is drawn on stiff paper or parchment, which
is carefully stretched over the pillow and pricked out along the main lines. Small pins are
inserted at close intervals, around which the threads turn to form the various meshes
and openings.

A good image depicting the use of a lace pillow is published within Genevieve Cummins
book, Antique Boxes Inside and Out
, Page 304, plate 564. Also, A Diderot Pictorial
Encyclopedia of Trades and Industry
, plate 445.

17th Century Leather Bound Trunk,
Brass Studs, Crowns, Fleur de Lis
Probably French


17th Century Leather Bound Trunk, Brass Studs, Crowns, Fleur de Lis 
Probably French, entire view 1

This casket is mounted with a pair of cast brass crowns which center the wrought iron bail handle. Other
ornament includes oval brass bosses, and hand planished domed tacks. On the front are a pair of brass
fleur-de-lis centering the lock hasp and heart shape escutcheon. All sides are covered in leather; bottom
appears to be covered with ostrich hide affixed with 27 domed brass tacks [may be over original hide];
some of the smallest domed tacks are embossed on edges. The interior is marble papered. Leather hinge
runs the width of trunk; metallic bound wove thread tape binding prevents the lid from falling backward
which partially protected the integrity of hinge. About half of the leather hinge is split, other minor
imperfections are consistent with age and use. When we acquired the box, the lock escutcheon plate was
missing some nails. We have since added period nails. Displays well.
