This is a beautiful little Palais Royal treen needle book with ‘forget me not’ in exquisite clouté (steel) decoration on the cover which really does sparkle in the light. The needle book opens to reveal a red fabric-lined interior with a pocket at each end for storage and the flannel leaves for storing needles – these are in pristine condition. The spine is of leather and there is a little damage to each end, and on the back there is evidence of an adhesive label which could possibly be removed (see images). Overall, this item is in beautiful condition for age and would make a lovely addition to any collection of needlework items. Approximate Width 3.75 ins (9.5cm) Height 2.45 ins (6.2cm). Weight 34 grams.
