Bone Carved Fish with lure cap Stanhope Sewing Needle Case in very fine original condition shows 6 views of Cromer UK. Cromer is a North Sea resort town near Norwich and Sheringham. This cute little sewing etui was made in France in the mid-late 19th century. The bobber or fishing lure cap unscrews from the fishes mouth and the body is hollow with room to store plenty of sewing needles. The body scales and the tail fins are carved or checkered and the eye is accented with red paint. The lure retains some of it's painted script "Cromer". Please see the photos for the best description of this. The stanhope is housed in the grooved and threaded lure cap and is in fine condition and very clear and easy to read but the image is light in contrast compared to many. It s also smaller than most. these two fact are telltale signs that it was a very early stanhope made circa 1870-85. The image is titled "CROMER" at the bottom and the six tiny images are all individually titled by hand as follows:

WEST CLIFFS
FROM THE EAST
THE PIER
