Meant to be worn on a chain or chatelaine, this antique sterling silver emery has an entwined scroll design. Since needles were precious, ladies would use an emery to sharpen their needles in order to give them longer life. Sewing was a big part of their lives. It measures 3 3/8” tall, 3/4" wide and 1/8” deep and is hallmarked. Circa: 1880.
