Default Maybe someone can identify this sewing item..vintage

I have had this in my collection of sewing things for a long time...they told me it was from WWII when I bought it, but not ever seeing one like it...I was wondering maybe someone on here could tell me from what era it came from..It has 2 spools of thread on the inside and the thimble is on top...Thanks

Is there perhaps needle storage in the core of the thread spools - does that central thing come out and open up?
