A nice antique souvenir Mauchline Ware Sewing Accessory. The Sewing Tools are in a wood case with a scene of Niagara Falls, New York and is marked "Horse Shoe Falls from Goat Island". It is filled with 19 steel wires, I don't know what they are from, they have rounded points on the ends, no hooks, threads or holes. I assume they are for sewing, lace, needle crafts and might be Pin pushers or Pullers or Beading Needles? Two are thinner and one of these has a small curve on the end, see photos. The Mauchline Case measures 9 3/4" long x 3/4" in diameter. It is in very good overall condition. It has a long slit on one side perhaps for ventilation? The steel wires have some rust on the surface, they pre date stainless steel. The Mauchline Tools would be perfect in a historical New York or Sewing related collection.
