Description
For sewing collectors! A beautifully engineered Victorian needle case, made of bone, with the handle shaped as a clasped hand. The handle unscrews to reveal container. There is a Stanhope in the clutched hand (named after its inventor- a lens revealing scenes, usually of some tourist destination) and this example is a Souvenir of Hastings, with various rather grainy views of the town. The case itself is in very good condition and could still be used for its original purpose.
