Pinball rings were used to carry a lady's sewing needles. The ring held a round ball, made sometimes of needlepoint, velvet, cotton, silk, or whatever the user had around; the inside of the ball was stuffed with wool, as lanolin keeps metal from rusting and helped make the needle go through fabrics smoother. Sometimes broken walnut shells would be added to the ball to help to keep needles sharpened.
The ball, inserted into the pinball ring, was attached to the lady's chatelaine by either chain or ribbon. She would also have scissors hanging from her chatelaine, maybe a magnifying glass, keys, ivory notebook, etc.
