Silver Ribbon Threaders

Here at Steppes Hill Farm Antiques we have a fine collection of Georgian and Victorian antique silver ribbon threaders, most commonly in a stork design. With the main function being to accomplish the fiddly task of threading ribbon through eyelets on baby clothes, the stork’s legs are adapted to feature rings to accommodate the user’s fingers. When the ‘scissors’ of the threader were open, a baby wrapped in cloth carried in the stork’s beak would also become visible. We also have a range of other antique silver sewing-related equipment for sale, such as pin cushions, thimbles and etuis.
