Military sewing kit with The Army and Navy Needle Book. Hard case, covered by fabric. Sewing kit includes razor blade, 5 spools of thread, blue plastic thimble, box filled with 14 white buttons and 9 blue anchor buttons, and one needle. Army Navy Needle Book fits well nestled over the mid-section of the kit. It originally included 29 needles, now contains 15. Book is very ornate, with a picture of an anchor and a shoreline with a lighthouse on the front, made in Japan printed at the bottom. The back of the book has an illustration featuring pegasus (?) and a globe floating above clouds. Inside, the needles are surrounded by an intricately patterned green trim. I discovered this sewing kit at a local estate sale. I believe it dates from the 1950's or 1960's, since the person whose name is on the outside of the case would have been of military age at that time. Not sure if he was issued the needle book while in the military, because I've read that these needle books were marketed to civilians (?) but the book was included in the sewing kit when I purchased it.

The sewing kit case measures 4 1/2" x 3" (11.5cm x 7.7cm). It has stains all over, the snap is rusted, but other than that, looks to be in sound condition. The snap is still functional.

This item will be shipped via First Class Mail to all worldwide locations.
