Default U.N.C.L.E. Thrush and Boye???

I was watching "The man from UNCLE" DVDs last night. In one episode the Thrush operatives were about to open their safe. they opened a cabinet and recessed into it was a huge disc.. Looked familiar.

Yep, they opened a slide and gave the inside a spin. It was a Boye, needle and shuttle sales case.

Where eise could I share this? hehe

Wow! That is really interesting history. Thanks Leonf and Dunster. I do have a few of the wooden needle holders but never saw that case. It is not even 7 am and I already learned something new for today!
