The Nailors (Pat and Tony) have put together an incredibly compelling display (in their booth at Stoudt's antique mall in Adamstown PA) of early sewing items, such as this Corticelli Silk spool cabinet, J&P Coats cabinet, and darning cotton box.

Interestingly they also have a small photo albums showing other spool cabinets they've run across over the years... talk about focus!

Part of my summer 2010 whirlwind east coast antiques tour.

    I recently bought a two drawer Clark's spool cabinet with the red glass in the drawers. I thought it had the original pulls but my husband says the hanging ones that have a brass plate with ONT are the originals and the others, that are just black knobs with brass at the tips are not original. If he is right, do you have any source for getting a couple original pulls?

    It's nice to see something so very similar to what I have! I have a 10 drawer
    Corticelli Spool Silk cabinet also. 8 glass drawers and 2 wood. It appears to be
    walnut with very similar painted wording on it. The pulls are different and no
    ornamentation on the top edge. Needs some gluing and has most all the scalloped dividers still but not many of the thin balsa strips left. Found it at a garage sale back in the seventies. I currently use it as a TV stand for our flat screen. It's the perfect height. Thanks for sharing your pics! Jo
