This wonderful and unusual needle case is solid mother of pearl in the form of a peapod. It was a souvenir piece from Tronville (France) and has that name inscribed on one side.
The condition is excellent with no chips, loss or other damage. It measures 3 7/8" long and the mother of pearl is nicely luminous. The only other needle case I've seen in this form (in mother of pearl) is shown on p. 139 of Nerylla Taunton's book Antique Needlework Tools and Embroideries. The postage shown includes Registered shipping for non US addresses and insured shipping within the US.
