Little Maids

The Little Maids Knitting Outfit and 
Knitting Set are Made in England.
I first found the Little Maid's Knitting
Set about five years ago.
In this set was a "Dolly Bobbin" spool knitter
(french knitter, knitting Nancy) which I
had thought was original to the set.
Now I am not so sure.
My recent find was the Little Maids
Knitting Outfit. (note - there
is no apostrophe in "Maids"). In this box were
a pair of wooden knitting needles and
six small balls of variegated wool.
Both boxes measure 25 cms x 6 1/2 cms.
There is no other brand name on either box.

I would guess that the "Knitting Outfit" is earlier than
the "Knitting Set" going by the wording of "outfit" being an
older term.
I would love to hear from anyone who may have had one
of these when they were younger and if you have any more
information you could possibly give.... thanks!
