This vintage fretwork box set has never been used with all items still having the wire attaching the tools to the box (please see condition). Circa1950’s-1960’s.
The underside of the lid has a great 1950’s Hobbies image showing a father and son working on a most impressive castle using the tools from the Hobbies box set. The picture also show the Hobbies A1 tool. The picture has Hobbies logo along with the words: ‘British Fretwork Tools, Hobbies Ltd – Dereham – Norfolk, For a lifetime of interest, printed in England’.
The outside of the box says: ‘Hobbies, A3 Fretwork Outfit’ on top and all round the lid edges.
Some of the items have black staining, pitting as can be seen in the photos. We can’t see the underside of the tools to say their condition; there is no easy way of checking the undersides without cutting the wires. Box has wear and tears.
