This antique THE NEW NEEDLE CASE is hanging by a thread. And all the original needles inside can't help much since this 'case' is actually a paper folder and it's old and fragile.
Still, it's a wonderful early sewing accessory from the Mills Needle Co. The front graphics show 'm'lady' stitching away contentedly. The back of the folder shows the family gathered around the table with the caption.... 'Best Needles for Daily Family Uses'. Even the cat is tempted by a ball of yarn offered by dad.
The folder opens up to reveal needle packs. Inside says SILVER STEEL - HARDENED IN OIL.
The closed folder measures 2 3/4 by 4 3/4 inches. The packets are mostly full with some on the side that may have fallen out.
'As Is' good antique condition. The needles are excellent quality. Circa 1900.
