This is a lovely ladies needle case or calling card case. It is Victorian and made from a gorgeous pink and gold silk brocade and trimmed with various gold metallic trims. Inside the case is gold silk and a panel of pink silk brocade that has a length of gold trim across to keep cards or other objects from falling out. The back of the piece is aubergine coloured velvet. I rather think that the pink silk brocade fabric both inside and outside is earlier, possibly 18th century fabric. The case is in wonderful condition and would make a lovely addition to a collection.
