What a true rare treasure this is! I have seen bits and pieces of this kit for sale before, but I have never run into the complete set including the original wood box. Im very happy to bring this to you and this is what I can tell you about it.
This came from a nice clean estate sale. This includes the original book. The book is in very good condition with no writing in it other than the original owners name in pencil on the cover. This was offered for sale by the Standard Dress Cutting Academy. The book is dated 1897.This is all part of the Standard Garment Cutting Co. You will receive everything pictured.
The wood box that this all fits in is in fairly good condition considering its well over 100 years old. The hinges and latches are a little loose but still function if closed properly.It does come with two curved squares as well as the adjustable Victor measure square. The book is extremely fascinating, even for somebody whos not interested in sewing or dressmaking. The cloth tape measure Im not really sure if that is supposed to be part of the kit, but Im assuming it might be. Since its been together for so many years, I would hate to break that up. This wood box measures roughly 23 x 6-3/4 x 1-3/8.
This came from a nice clean non-smoking estate sale. Please look at all pictures very closely and feel free to ask any questions.
STORE POLICIES: We strive to accurately list everything and we acquire our items from fine estate sales. We are not experts on all items we have listed.
We are constantly on "the hunt" for exciting things to pass on to you. We take pride in every piece.Items are inventoried and stored in a clean and smoke-free environment. In every title, you will find a number in parentheses. This is for our inventory control only. We always try to select items from estate sales that are also clean and smoke-free. Customer service is top priority for us and we want our customers happy! We cannot correct a problem if we do not know about it. With some items we may be double boxing just to do everything we can to get the product to you unbroken. However, if possible I will send it out priority because sometimes it is the same price for us.
Really the only time it wouldn't be cost-effective for us to send it priority is for heavy items so keep that in mind. Search the help feature on how you change your address.We do our best to accurately describe every item. Usually the first time we list an item, we do not use the best offer option. If it doesn't sell the first time around we will probably use the best offer option. When customers make an offer through the best offer option, any reasonable offer is considered.
However, we do research the going price of every item before replying to those offers.
