A very cute wooden darning egg, complete with a central shaft for holding needles (including the cap), a turned spool that holds thread and an utilitarian thimble. Top and bottom screw apart with ease.
American sterling silver thimble marked for Stern Bros./Goldsmith Stern. Size 9. No holes and in round.
The wood appears to be something like olive or maple wood but I am no expert on wood.
Egg measures approximately 3.5 cm in length. Excellent condition.
