This pretty object opens to place knitting yarn or crochet thread inside and hang it on something or around the neck, this rather than having a ball of thread running all over the room, or getting the attention of the resident cat.
the two halves close snugly.
Each side has an oval scene children dressed in period clothing
good detail, a ridge around the center and a couple of little ridges around the thread exit.
