Rare Victorian Beach Bathing Hut Sewing Needle Holder – Needle Case - Regd. 1879 For Sale

Rare Victorian Beach Bathing Hut Sewing Needle Holder – Needle Case - Regd. 1879

This is a Victorian sewing needle holder in the form of a beach bathing hut.

It has a registration lozenge for 1879.

It measures 7.2cm long, 3.4cm wide and 4.3cm tall.

The steps at the front lift up and the sun visor with the lozenge mark on it lifts up so that you can access the needle compartments that are numbered 7. 8. 9. 6/10.

Most of the original gilding remains, inside are a couple of packs of needles, the construction is lightweight, but having said that its still here and over 130 years old, I have not seen this model before, so I believe it to be quite rare,

The beach hut was a Victorian idea that came about when it was decided that bathing in the sea was considered to be excellent for your health and to protect a lady's reputation and modesty, the hut would be pushed to the waters edge, then the lady would quickly descend the steps into the sea, I don't think the sight of a lady would cause too much excitement as her costume covered her from bellow the knee to her neck and I believe a large hat was also worn so not much to see for the voyeur.
