Wonderful antique French Napoleon III era Palais Royal style gilt bronze ormolu and mother of pearl sewing etui, a whimsical piece in the shape of a miniature vanity or dressing table with glass front vitrine and pearl trinket dish! Meant to hold a set of miniature sewing implements (though it will hold a standard sized thimble). The tools are missing now but what a lovely little sewing related piece! A great display, alongside other Palais Royal pearl pieces or sewing items. Don't miss it!
Good-very good condition. As noted, the tools are missing and we've had to have the glass panel in the vitrine door replaced but there are no other breaks, no chips or damage. See pictures for measurements.
