this started out in life over 100 years ago as a sewing needle box, Redditch was the centre of needle manufacture I believe, my Grandmother was given this by her husband who worked overseas, she left it to me as I played with it as a child...

Redditch is a town and local government district in north-east Worcestershire, England, approximately 15 miles (24 km) south of Birmingham. The district had a population of 79,216 in 2005. In the 19th century it became the international centre for the needle and fishing tackle industry. At one point 90% of the world's needles were manufactured in the town and its neighbourhoods.[1] In the 1960s it became a model for modern new town planning.
