Sewing acorn

A little sewing acorn from my collection.

This little copper acorn opens in the middle and has a little wooden thread holder with a place for needles. I think originally it would have had a thimble inside also, and a little hook where the hole is at the tip for attaching the acorn to a chatelaine.

  1. How interesting! I've never seen one of those before.

  2. Neither have I, but it's beautiful.
