Thank you Leelai, Its lovely to share my passion with others and i like to think others get pleasure from seeing them, The only thing that stops me doing more is space, I'm lucky that my hubby loves them too and shares my interest.

Following putting on a few of my Victorian Needle cases i couldn't resist putting on these, Possibly my favourites, The one on the left is Cantonese carving, circa 1850, The carving is wonderful, The Ivory one on the right has a real Turquoise stone in the end.

Those look very fragile, but too beautiful for needle cases! I think my needles are all stuck in an old tomatoes pin cushion!

No they're not fragile at all, The carved one has to be cleaned carefully but they're quite strong, They have survived roughly 150-160 years now, Amazing really when you think about it.
I don't use them though, My pins and needles are stuck in a tatty old pin cushion, You definitely wouldn't want to see that.

Just beautiful needle cases Ivy......I've had a look for these here, no luck as yet finding one though! But I do really want one now!:p

I have my needles in those old film canisters.....just not as pretty at all!

Thank you, We're lucky here in that respect, There's no shortage if you're willing to pay the price.
Beware though, If you start you may not be able to stop ;)
