Vintage sewing supplies are not only useful and often much more well made, but the graphics and presentation on them is nearly always superior to comparable present-day products. And this wonderful card of one dozen snap fasteners is no exception.
Each vintage card is full (with 12 snap sets). The card measures 4-1/2 by 3-5/8 inches. The snaps circle an elk printed in vibrant color. The snaps are unsold, never used old-store stock from the 1940s. The card reads:
Prym's SUPER STEEL
MADE IN STEEL ACCORDANCE WITH NOT RUST PROOF W.P.B. ORDER L-68
1 DOZ. SNAP FASTENERS
MADE IN U.S.A.
We have packaged these in cellophane for protection. However, the original card was unpackaged. We are charmed by the manner in which items from the early and mid-20th century were packaged - without protection from shoplifters and vandals. Maybe one day we can hope for this to return.
