Surprise Family Heirloom

This one looks just like mine Just got back from my great aunt's house with something that I've never expected to have in my artifact collection: A vintage glass darning egg.  According to my great aunt, ours has been passed down in the family since 1860, and when her grandmother (my great great grandmother) gave it to her, she put it away so no one would bother it. However, when she found out that I am a HUGE history buff who is the family genealogist who sews, she immediately set it aside for me in hopes that I would carry on the tradition.  Super excited!
