Companion Necessaire Sewing Kit Antique Victorian.
A lovely antique companion necessaire or sewing set shaped like a hard back book.Some of the original items are still inside. There's a mini pair of scissors, among other things (please see photos). We believe it to date from the Victorian era, roughly 1900. These little sets were an absolute must have for any self respecting housewife of the time. Having good dressmaking and embroidery skills meant a lot in days gone by. Slight wear commensurate with age (please see photos).
Size 8.5 x 6.0 x 2.8 cm or 3.3 x 2.4 x 1.1 inches.
Weight 42.0 grams or 27.0 penny weight.
