[E282]

This ornate ivory needle case is carved with beautiful detail and it has a lovely old patina and grain pattern. It's decorated with Chinese figures on a ground of foliage. The top is in the form of a flower. It was carved in China in the early 19th century for an English workbox.

The condition is excellent with no chips, cracks or loss and it screws together perfectly. It measures 2 5/8" long. This style of needlecase is shown on p. 84 of Nerylla Taunton's book Antique Needlework Tools.
