19th Century Needlecases

English Needlecases
Vintage Sewing Necessities at their best. These little tubes were created in the 1800's. The cases are brass and then coated in a marbelized  type of enamel. Inside each case is a small wood needle case. Wrapped around the wooden tube filled with needles, is thread and then topped with a thimble. These were purchased from a collection in La Jolla, California. Wouldn't these look great displayed?
They have all flown from my "coop". I think they are marvelous!
