A useful sewing tool containing emery grains for cleaning needles and pins. This is a replica made of elephant friendly ivorite; the original was a nineteenth century, ornamental turned, emery. It has decorative turned details. Some minute pinholes may occur in the beaded border, very hard to see. A very tactile easy to hold item. The silk colour may vary, but is usually blue or pink.
Measures 1″ high x 3/4″ across the top and sits nicely on the sewing table.
