HOO Gramophone Needle Tin
A beautiful HOO brand gramophone needle tin from Japan. In Japan the mythical Phoenix was adopted as a symbol of the imperial household, particularly the empress. This mythical bird represents fire, the sun, justice, obedience, fidelity, and the southern star constellations. These tins are very hard to find and this one is in lovely condition as can be seen in the photographs.
