This is a Victorian Red Silk Strawberry Sewing Emery that is Hand-Stitched and embroidered with Lots of Seeds. Strawberry sewing emeries were used to keep needles and pins sharp. At one time leaves were glued to the top. The tip shows some wear allowing the liner fabric to show through. There is also one tiny hole.It measures 1-1/2 inch long and the strawberry is wonderful because of the quantity of seeds extremely and neatly placed.
