[E192]

This ornate needle case is carved of ivory with beautiful detail and it has a lovely old patina and grain pattern. It's decorated with a twining dragon and butterflies on a background of clouds. The top and bottom are in the form of sunflowers. It was carved in China in the early 19th century for an English workbox.

The condition is excellent with no cracks or other damage and it screws together perfectly. It measures 3 5/8" long. This style of needlecase is shown on p. 84 of Nerylla Taunton's book Antique Needlework Tools.
