Card needle holder.
Rare find for one is such lovely condition.
Was found in a tin of sewing bits from around 1890.
Originally I would think it held needles, but now has 3 antique hatpins inside.
The images are really lovely – see pics.
The hatpins are glass/jet ? two are faceted. The tops are in excellent condition, but the pins are rusty.
Measures 3.5 x 2.5″
Price includes postage.
