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

Aside from a tiny chip at the edge of the top, the condition is excellent with no cracks 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".
