Description

SKU: 1047

An unusual antique silver needle case with embossed flower decoration and four¬†applied tortoise shell ovals, two on each side — Very unusual. ¬†Case is hallmarked on the neck but it is impossible to make out the maker’s mark or provenance. If I had to hesitate a guess, it would be “Continental”

Needle case measures 8.9 cm L and tapers down to the bottom half. Opens and shuts with ease.

Excellent condition.
