Fine Antique Sewing Etui, French Shell Pique, EC

One of the best little French necessaire sewing etui in elegant chocolate and cognac shell - a well-formed case that still holds the sewing implements and small mirror original to it (all implements are steel and are not sterling silver). Note that it is still in really fine condition for age and type. A beauty you'd be pleased to own or to give as a gift. Beautifully preserved, I see no nips, bites, cracks or damage to the 2 panels of shell - they're both just stunning.

Very good condition, the only flaw to note is the missing bodkin (large needle), which is simple to replace. Beautiful! One you'll love to display with your own collection.
