Gell Bros 1920s Needle Book

When everyone had needles, they cared deeply about which they had, and this Gell Bros All Gold Eye book, at 50¢, must have been the bees knees, all "Best Quality Large Gold Eyes," "All stuck on cloth". Unusually, you get the complete set, including the outer envelope: a bodkin, 2 wool darners, 6 yarn darners, a chenille, a tapestry, 2 crewel, 2 large eyed sharps, and five (so pretty!) papers containing different sized sharps. I guess this predates needle threaders so you'll have to supply your own--worth it for such an esthetically pleasing experience in your darning basket.
