WOW! What an incredible find. Straight from an auction house in Europe, this hard to find COMPLETE 12 pc tool functioning ETUI is in Very Good condition for it's age. The exterior is a REAL Egg, not sure type but it looks like it could be from a Duck. There are a 2 small cracks but they do not affect the beauty or function. Check photos, you will have trouble locating them. I believe the bezel is brass and the tools are a combination of 9ct gold, brass, steel and silver.
