Rare Victorian Beach Bathing Hut Sewing Needle Holder – Needle Case - Regd. 1879 For Sale
is a Victorian sewing needle holder in the form of a beach bathing
has a registration lozenge for 1879.
measures 7.2cm long, 3.4cm wide and 4.3cm tall.
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.
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,
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.
would be happy to combine postage
to your favourites
