I just love this reference book and I have used my copy over and over again. The book is hard-covered and the title is “Victorian Brass Needlecases” by Estelle Horowitz and Ruth Mann. Ruth had a fabulous collection of brass needlecases and her collection was, for the most part, sold through Christie’s South Kensington, London, England.
The book includes the history of the brass industry in England, the needle makers of Redditch, William Avery, the patents, designs and the registration marks, souvenirs and commemoratives, and so much more. 159 pages jam-packed with information and black and white images. This book is no longer in print.
