A case of pointyness

Remember I told you about a needle case? Well, I have had it for some time, but I haven't got around to posting pics of it yet. Here is one, anyway. The case is made in triangular shape, from pure silver, and it is hybrid based on two 14th century sources (I can't tell you which two, as I haven't made it myself, but I am sure they are accurate, as Martin takes his stuff seriously). It is pretty exactly 8 centimetres long, from the top of the cross to the bottom, and each side is circa 1 centimetre across. It has inscriptions on the sides saying: "Non mihi", "Non tibi", "Sed Nobis", which means "Not for me", "Not for you", "But for us".
