Eureka! Knitting Needles!
The case was evidently sold originally with a set of needles and I assume that the present contents are some of those. The writing on the case says "EUREKA - Best Quality - Steel Knitting Pins Highly Tempered - Guaranteed not to rust - Germany". And indeed they have not rusted. I think they must date from before the First World War - the woman's head on the cap could be Edwardian.
It would be nice to knit something with the thicker needles, perhaps a pair of fine mittens.
