I love antique sewing accessories. I found this sterling silver needle case in an antique store amongst a jumble of threads that was once someone's sewing kit.
It is sterling silver and embossed with a couple standing facing a castle and a Van Gogh sky. It's so cool. When you press the small button on the front, it pops open, like a make-up compact. That's when all the needles fly out at you.
It's stamped with a patent from Jan. 12, 1904.
This needle case is hand painted porcelain from Limoge. It was a gift. The needles tend to fly out of this one as well. Flying needles, the price of beauty.
