Porcelain Figural Needle case of a Lady's Forearm Holding a Bird's Nest

This is an early Victorian Porcelain Figural Needle case. The Porcelain Figural Needle case is that of an elegant lady's forearm with a bird's nest in her hand. The end of the needle case is brass is a sole flower design on it (see photo). The needle case dates from the 1820's and is in extremely good condition. I need not tell sewing collectors how rare it is to find a porcelain figural needle case and one which displays such great detail and quality -- even to displaying the bird's eyes. There is very minor wear to some of the paint detailing but other than that I can find no damage. The length of this needle case is 3 1/2"
