I actually found this cute little piece in the English town of Newark, and I was happy to bring it back home! Wonderful little souvenir or advertising sewing kit or etui - the thimble top kind - featuring a plug for High Point, North Carolina, "The Industrial City" with a drawing of a piece of furniture (no doubt alluding the North Carolina's furniture industry). Brass thimble pops off to reveal a wooden interior that also slides out - has a compartment for needles/pins and places to wind thread. Measures about 2.5 inches long. Excellent condition.
