Stop the (Vintage Textiles) Madness!

Here I go again! More vintage treasures from the local Senior Center Boutique! I found these two cloth thread holders. I have never seen these before! I'm not even sure how the thread got into these tiny little spaces! Does anyone know how these work? The thread is Royal Society which was manufactured by a company in New York from the 1890's to 1930's. Very cool.

I also found more great doilies, lace, and this great coral-color grosgrain ribbon! Can't get enough!

i think the one you have threads in is for knitting needles? that is how i have seen it used.
