My sister-in-law kindly found this beautiful Victorian needlework set for me. Now, I know what a thimble is and I can identify the tweezers in the middle, seeing as I've been using my eyebrow tweezers recently to pull out threads in my Hardanger work.

The case has a lovely orange plush cover and a beautiful clasp:
