Very old piece from Redditch, Great Britain. I am presuming that Kirby Beard & Co. LTD. Made needles for all sorts of uses and this was one of their cases to store those needles. Check out the pictures on this piece. Condidtion can be seen in the pictures. Overall size is 8 ½” x 4” when open and closed it is 4” x a little over 2 ½””.
