This is a beautiful early hand forged set of quilter's clamps. Ex Collection Felicia Sessums. Felicia used them clamped on the edge of a mantel or a step back cupboard to hold a garland of bayleaves and little naturals. These are beautiful clamped on a table edge or in a sewing basket. Of course they held the four corners of a small quilting frame together. Rare to find now! Not to be confused with the later cast type.
The "C" part is about 2 inches on each one. Fully open, turn screw and all they measure about 3 1/2 inches. E
