This is a beautiful little box for storage of packets of needles. It appears to be covered with a veneer of satinwood and is in the shape of an early knife box. The front has a delightful painting of three strawberries and foliage and there is very fine bordering of all surfaces with black stringing. When opened, it reveals a compartment which is beautifully shaped and it holds three needle packets. Each packet contains at least one needle and they are remarkably fine. One is for ‘Gold Eyed Needles (Size 12)’ from Deanes of London, another is by W. Lund, also of London (Size 10) and the third is for ‘Royal Victoria Countersunk Sharps Size 9’. The box is in excellent condition for age and would grace any collection related to needlework or needle holders. Height 2.25 ins (5.5cm), width 1 ins (2.5cm), depth 0.25 ins (1.2cm). Weight 4 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 301.
