The Needlecase in the shape of a tower is slightly adapted from a 15th C. needle case from the Netherlands (Schatten) and similar to an English example (MoL, Pilgrim Souvenirs, fig. 7). It has the names of the Three Kings of Cologne and an invocation on the lower part. The upper and lower parts are strung together on cords, much as contemporary leather etuis are made. This item was tremendously popular with seamstresses and broidresses when we first introduced it this summer. It is a guaranteed winner as a gift for your favorite medieval needle jockey.

Needlecase $20.00
3-7/8 x 1" or 97 x 26mm
