This is a Victorian Large Hand Stitched Red Wool Strawberry Sewing Needle and Pin Emery. An emery was used to keep needles and pins sharp. This fine example was hand stitched and hand made by the original owner out of red wool challis and has embroidered seeds. At one time there was a stitched cloth top for the strawberry leaves as you can see the stitching holes and leaf edge lines. There are no moth holes. It is a plump one measuring 2 inches long. A little gem.
