I recently found this vintage Bakelite needle box at a local antique store. I am not sure when it was made, but I assume quite a while ago as it is marked "Made in Melbourne - Australia". You don't find too many items made in Melbourne these days...
It is dusty pink and in brilliant condition. It has holes for sizing knitting needles according to imperial measurements, and has an inch ruler running along one side.
Now that I am a knitter (ahem), I had a growing pile of needles that were in desperate need of storage. This box is able to comfortably hold the shorter ones with room to spare.
