An antique silver needle case with its original silk cord and tassel. This needle case is shaped like a gourd, covered with hand engraved floral designs. The orange silk is woven into decorative knots and embellished with patterns in silver thread. This lovely piece is most likely Korean. Needles were expensive and difficult to replace, they were stored in beautifully crafted cases for safekeeping. This needle case is in lovely condition and dates from the 1800s.

Details.....The total length of this piece, including the silk, is 9" long. The needle case measures 2.44" by 1.42". In Very Good Antique Condition. Some wear should be expected on all vintage and antique pieces, we consider it to be part of their charm.
