Antique Carved Horn Needle Case
German or Swiss * Circa 1890
This fascinating antique is carved of horn into the form of an antelope's horn.The horn is highly polished at the bottom and on the screw off top.
The top has a couple of minor nicks in the edge rim, but the overall condition is excellent with no other damage and it screws together perfectly. It has a lovely old patina and measures 2 1/2" long. A horn needle case in this style is shown on p. 142 of Nerylla Taunton's book Antique Needlework Tools and Embroideries.
