Late 18th century Dutch knitting sheath/scabbard.

No marks but tests as silver.

This is in lovely condition with very good crisp foliate decoration.

There is a loop on one side from which a chain would be attached so it would hang below the arm.

On one side there is a hole which I understand allowed for the disposal of the wool grease.
