This turned bone figural umbrella needle case has a nicely carved chamois hoof as the handle. The hoof handle unscrews and is the closure for the needle case. This parasol needle case has fine details and a nice old patina. The case measures 5" long and 11/16" wide. The stanhope is through the side of the hoof and shows a view of Roton Point in Connecticut. you can clearly see bathers on the beach and a large steamship off in the distance. The stanhope is titled ROTON POINT (CONN) VIEW OF BEACH under the photo. It is additionally marked MADE IN FRANCE along the right side. This view is and easy to see. There are some small scratches in the photo that do not detract and are original flaws in the emulsion.

I collect souvenirs of Roton Point Park, which was an amusement park in Norwalk, CT 1880s -1941. I was delighted to stumble upon this category, the Stanhope viewer. What an interesting find! Stanhope Microworks has such a wide variety of these novelties - not only small souvenirs like this but walking sticks, violin bows and more. The cliche images are only 3mm and it is amazing that there was this technology in these earlier days. I would like to buy another image and have it set inside a charm for my charm bracelet, and they can do custom work there as well. I highly recommend this business, they really know their stuff and have probably the largest collection of Stanhopes in the world.
