    This Vintage The Home Needle Case with Fall and Winter Scenes was an advertising giveaway by The Thomas Phillips & Son Co, a maker of artistic memorials for cemeteries in New Haven, Conn.  (This information and a black and white illustration of three memorials in a cemetery landscape can be found on the inside of the back cover.)  The colorful cardboard case measures 4.75" high by 2.75" wide with rounded outside corners.  The front cover shows a young girl dressed in a red, black and white bowed hat, striped dress and plaid spats, looking off to her left and holding a bouquet of holly.  She is surrounded by Fall colored leaves, some of which are falling from the tree.  In the distance is a cottage with a long plume of smoke arising from its chimney.  The back cover shows a cottage covered with snow, surrounded by four trees, and topped by a deep grayed blue starry sky.  Both images have a decorative border in a butterscotch color.  Inside the front cover is a green and white diamond pattern, a charcoal colored paper sleeve for holding needles, and two needles.  Maker and exact age are unknown.  This Vintage The Home Needle Case with Fall and Winter Scenes is in very good condition with some minor wear to the front cover and minor staining to the diamond pattern.
