Putnam’s dyes have long been the traditional standard of excellence for those artisans who prefer to dye their own rug wool. A lively market for vintage and antique Putnam’s dyes and their marketing containers has grown up, as rug hookers and dyers have become collectors. These items also attract collectors of country store memoribilia.
Recently I was very fortunate to find this store counter case in brightly lithographed tin. As it is still in the mails to me I am waiting keenly to receive it so that I get a clearer picture of its dimensions and condition.
I am offering it for sale immediately so that those of you who know the scarcity of such an item can get in on the ground floor and speak for it. What a wonderful gift it would make for someone at Christmas! For further details, please contact me at
