Description:

This looks like a tube of red paper, with white scribbles on the top. But if we wait quietly a small worm emerges from one end, and starts to move across the table, pulling the tube along with it. We would love to know what it is.

Yes - we found it on a red carpet!

The case does look very elegant.

Many thanks - much appreciated.
