This is a little cloisonne box which I inherited from my Grandmother Ailene. All during my childhood I remember this little box sitting on the table beside the chair she always sat in to work on knitting, tatting or her latest needlework project. It would hold needles, pins, bits of thread and thimbles. One of my greatest sorrows is the fact that she was never able to teach me to tat.
