Antique French Silver Sewing Tools Set, Still in Original Etui, Box

Always a treat to find these old French sewing sets complete and in the original case, and this one is just that: A c.1900 French made sewing or embroidery tools set in .800/1000 pure French silver, marked with the boar's head mark used in France since 1838 to guarantee that grade of silver. The .800/1000 is more often used in sewing and small vanity items owing to it being stronger and less prone to bending or damage in small items such as these where .950/1000 pure silver is a bit too soft a metal. The set is complete, as noted, right down to the bodkin. They pieces all match and are of the Napoleon III revival of the original Napoleonic 'Empire' style. They are original to one another, as you can see: Scissors, needle case, stiletto, thimble and bodkin. The case is leather-clad on a base of wood, and is gold-embossed and in excellent condition. Perfect for gift or use.

Very good to excellent condition throughout, this one appears to have been used little if at all, and would make a fabulous gift for the seamstress or needlework enthusiast in your family. Circa 1900, it's newer than most of our sewing sets. Do look through, as we have a particularly expansive and opulent selection of fine sewing boxes and etui just now, all sold separately.
