C.1880 English Mother-of-Pearl Needle Case
A charming English sewing item. This unusual needle ‘case’ has Mother-of-Pearl cover with an outline to abalone shell around the slanted lid. This case is lined in a red silk and other than one nick to the right top corner is in very nice condition. This lovely mother-of-pearl item would have been part of a larger full set of sewing items.
C. 1860. Measurements: 2 inches highs back point, 1 inch in depth and 3/4 - 1 1/2 inches at the widest point. A wonderful item for a collection or used.
