Fine Antique Napoleon III Era European 18k Gold Sewing or Embroidery Tools Set, Scissors, Bodkin, Needle Case, Etc., etc.
Very good condition throughout. A superb set, with a replacement thimble that is vermeil, but not gold, and all other items in the set are 18k solid gold, marked with the eagle's head, the French control mark for acid tested confirmed 18k gold. The carved case has no cracks or chips, damage, and is shown for your review in our photos. Really nothing else to report. Total weight does include the steel parts, as well. The old steel is also in good form and scissors are very sharp, ready to use, even though you see a little of the age corrosion or staining on the old hardened steel, which is typical in these sets, of course. A superb find - elegant old treasure and very hard to find.
