This is a delightful original needle box which appears to come from the ‘Tarantella’ set (CL No 137), date 1850 as per the little note inside the box. This little item has obviously lived a life and the image on the front has darkened and blurred with time, and the corners of the cardboard top and base are split but all present. This little box would be a nice addition to a collection of containers of packets of needles and is worthwhile as a rare and desirable item despite the listed problems. 2 ins (5cm) x 1 ins (2.5cm) x 0.5 ins (1cm). Weight 2 grams. Insured Air Mail Post to the USA would be $21.00 USD - with tracking is more expensive. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
