Viking needlecase with chain made of brass, metal ribs have ends hanging down like teeth, and are decorated with dot and circle impressions. This needlecase is a reconstruction of needle case found at Stöng, Iceland, which was dated circa mid and late 11th cent. When it was found it was filled with horse hair from the mane or the tail of a dark horse. (ref.Vilhjálmur Örn Vilhjálmsson (1989). Stöng og Þjórsárdalur-bosættelsens ophør. Í Bojsen Chris­tensen K. M. og).  Needlecases are very frequently found in female graves of the late Viking period. They were an important accessory as well as a functional tool. Length 50mm, diameter 10mm.
