Antique Beaded Needle Case
This delightful Antique Needle Case Beaded Red will make a welcome addition to your collection! The crafter made it with Red fabric bound with silk ribbon. He or she created a three dimensional floral design on both sides using Clear Seed beads and Clear Basket Beads. Clear Seed Bead loops decorate the edges. Inside you will find two fabric leaves that still have some needles in them. The crafter lined the inside with a dark red fabric.
There is no obvious bead loss on this case. You will see moth damage to the outside red fabric. There is some discoloration on the inside. The case measures about 3.25 inches x 3 inches at the widest points. We do not recommended that you use this case for needles. It will make a beautiful display piece. One of a Kind!
This Needle Case Beaded Red is a classic example of the Beaded Whimsy tourist souvenirs made by Native American crafters in the border regions between Canada and the United States. Native American beaded whimsies refer to small decorative items or trinkets that Native American artisans hand craft using intricate beadwork techniques. These ‘whimsical’ creations often come in practical shapes and styles like pincushions, match holders, picture frames, needle cases, bags and small decorative cushions. One of a Kind!
