Antique Napoleon III era writer's set, complete and in original leather case, box, coffret. The 4 implements are all original to the set, and 3 pen nibs are with the set, too. You have a pen, a letter opener, a mechanical pencil or lead holder, and a blade for scraping errors off the page (eraser, 19th century). Each has the horn of a small ibex, natural horns all. Splendid set for anyone who loves Black Forest items, or for a gentleman's desktop in a hunting lodge, Country French or English Manor home. Rare and magnificent one of a kind set.
Very good to excellent condition throughout, with a nod to that corrosion on the sharp blade of the erasure tool. Apart from that it seems they've never been out of case for use. The old case is even in superb form. Silk velvet bottom is fitted to each piece, and the inner lid is also silk fabric without deterioration. Measurements are noted on our photos for your review. Box is 7" x 4" and is 1" thick when closed. RARE fine set. Very unique!
