THOMAS STEVENS,
COVENTRY
WARRANTED BY MORRIS & YEOMANS
[flowers]
Size:

Composed of three panels
each measuring approximately 7.6cm by 10.2cm;
and overall, 19.1cm by 10.2cm when open

Comments:
The case is made of a gold coloured velvet, and as can be seen, " THOMAS STEVENS, COVENTRY " is printed on the paper packet containing the actual needles.
The view of the flowers would normally have been part of a Stevens' bookmark, however I am at this time unable to identify that bookmark.
