RAREST 1820-40 Palais Royal Sewing Etui - Faux Tortoise Shell & French Dore Bronze Carriage & Bronze Horse -
Very good condition, with a few age hairline cracks in the shell, which is absolutely in character for these old French ones where the shell is not veneered to wood, but is itself the panel. That there is no missing chunk or section qualifies it as 'excellent' to most knowledgeable collectors. The loss of one handle of the little sewing scissors inside is more bothersome, but again ony slightly so since it is rare enough to find these with anything remaining of the sewing implements. The rarity of this carriage should not be overlooked. A truly amazing piece. It is French in origin, but we have purchased it within the USA.
