[E658]

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 birds and butterflies on a cloud background. The top is in the form of a sunflower. It was carved in China in the early 19th century for an English workbox.

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