Robertson Golden Shred needle case

Robertson Golden Shred needle case
Robertson needle holder


An advertising needle holder produced by Robertson's to promote their Golden Shred marmalade. This was obviously part of the big advertising campaign by Robertson's using the then popular 'golly' image.

The front and back of the case are the same design with the needles held inside. On one side of the interior is the advertisement for Golden Shred with text regarding awards by the Institute of Hygiene.

The holder currently contains 10 needles of varying sizes. There is nothing to give the age but it could be from any date between the 1930's and 1950's.

Size of the holder is 77mm high and 30mm wide. There is some rubbing of the edges but overall it is in good condition.

Price £15.00.
Postage & packing for UK £1.80.
