The name and color of Hyacinth Blue of these vintage embroidery threads remind me of spring. 12 unused cotton skeins in the original box could complete many a craft or needlework project. Or perhaps if you love old boxes and threads, just fun to collect.
Embroidery floss dates from the 1920's or possibly earlier. Name of the brand is Peri-Lusta made in England. Each #5 skein has 27 yards. All are complete with the paper wrapper on both ends. Condition of the skeins is excellent. Even the box is decent. I noticed a tear at the middle on one of the sides.
