From a past time, a circa 1880's needle case in a book shape. The plush velvet covered cardboard case is embellished with a paper scrap of a hand holding a bouquet.  A sweet poem is inscribed on the note. 

The inside of book opens for storing needles, perhaps a thimble.  Head of a Victorian lady is affixed to the inside cover.  The other cover appears to also had a scrap attached, however, just a smidgen of  paper is left.   Back of needle book is plain plush fabric.

Condition:  Certainly for the age, the book is good but shows use.  There is normal wear to the plush fabric.  At one time the case was a maroon but faded over time to a brown maroon   The paper scrap of Victorian lady inside cover is bent.  Missing paper scrap on inside back cover. 

Size is 2-3/4" long x 2-1/8" wide x 1-1/8" in height.
