Late eighteenth or early nineteenth century sterling silver filigree two part needle case. Like most English filigree sewing items of this era it is not hallmarked but tests as sterling. A very nice example for its age with only very minimal loss or damage to the filigree work. Approx. 6.6 cm from end to end; weighs 12.1 grams.
This type of filigree work was used on a range of sewing items such as thimbles and novelty compendia - known as 'Birmingham Toys' - which incorporated thimbles, scent bottles, tape measures, pin cushions and seals. It is believed that these items were made in Birmingham by Italian immigrants and their families.
