CELLULOID NEEDLE CASE, THIMBLE & BOBBIN HOLDER - RED & CREAM MAN

Love this - it is an Art Deco period, celluloid needle case/bobbin holder/thimble in the shape of a red man.  Everything you need to make an emergency sewing repair - sew on a button etc. - in a wonderful humorous case.  The thimble comes off the top. The middle unscrews to reveal a bobbin for cottons.  This unscrews to hold a couple of needles.  He has lost a little paint but is otherwise in good condition.  Price £68 ref: 3030 C58/4
