This is a Hand Carved, very likely a POW made, Ox bone Antique miniature 2" plus handle basket with a COMPLETE Necessaire set that includes a fold up hook, toothpick, knife, corkscrew,file and a stationary button hook. Perfect doll or child size. I had all the tools checked for authenticity because I thought it odd that it had both the stationary and fold up hook so close in size but they are identically made. I think the artist may have started with the stationary hook and then decided to do fold-ups as an after thought. The set is in Very good condition but needs some paint on the bottom so that the mirrored effect is complete, a VERY easy repair. The tools themselves are in Excellent shape, probably unused but could use a good cleaning after 150 or so years.
