Vintage 1940s Peri-Lusta Mending Maid Darning Doll

£30.00

Oh my cuteness! These sweet 'Mending Maids' date back to the 1940s and were rescued from an old haberdashery, so they are totally new and un-used! Doll has a wink and a smile and declares that 'I'm here to darn your hose'!.

A fabulous piece of make-do-and-mend history, this doll is formed of 8 skin-tone shades of mercerised cotton thread reels and is balanced on a thread card labelled 'Peri Lusta, Darning Thread, Made in England'. 

Makes a great gift for anyone with an interest in haberdashery history!
