It's about 2 1/4" long, capped on the front end, open on the other and it had a threaded needle stuck in it. I don't see any marking on it.

It was stuck down in that metal tube stamped with  Lydia E Pinkham's  Vegetable Compound  Blood Medicine  Sanative Wash  Liver Pills  

Sorry the photo didn't load the first time!

There are lots of different styles out there. These were usually trade give-aways. They are little sewing kits to tuck in your pocketbook or travel case. 
The bobbin shaped area was to fill with thread.
