This 1950s sewing needle book or case has nostalgic graphics from first glance. Sewing & mending was an integral part of a housewifes routine during the last century. Women often gathered for sewing sessions or sewing "bees" with mothers, daughters, aunts, grandmothers or friends to not only get things sewn, but to get "caught up" on everything that was happening in their lives.
Made in Japan, this 1940s-early 50s HAPPY HOME needle book is in excellent condition with graphics that remain as vibrant as when first new. Inside you'll find its protective black tissue insert that protects the needles when not in use. These needles are safely tucked inside of their original colorful foils & only a couple are missing. These foils are in excellent condition & remain firmly affixed to the inside of the needle book. There is no paper loss, creases, torn areas, or fading of graphics & because of its excellent condition appears to have been used very little. This is sewing treasure is another excellent one to add to any collection.
