Rarest Antique French Boulle Sterling Sewing Etui, Faux Tortoise Shell ALL 5 Original Vermeil Implements
Very good condition. There is crazing to the shell on the beveled lid and sides but the large (thicker) top panel is lustrous and beautiful. No missing ormolu trim. There are two small shell chips, one on a side where a tack holds the trim and the other about center on the lower rear panel of the box. The interior has a mirror in the lid (original?) and the velvet fittings in the base. It would likely have had rope borders or piping around the mirror and fittings but that's easy to replace. The ribbon loop that would have held the bodkin is also missing. All of the implements are in superb condition except for the scissors, that have a clean break in the steel portion just above the scissor. See pictures for measurements.
NOTE This item will be handled and shipped from our Utah office, and is not available to California customers, sorry.
