A nice sterling silver needle case with bail for attaching to a chatelaine. The case is 3 1/4" long, not including the bail. The top fits snugly. The case has a checkerboard pattern and is marked "Sterling" on the side along with a maker's mark that we are unable to decipher and identify. Condition is good for a piece dating to the late 1800's with a small dent on either side as you can see in the photos.
