An unusual Victorian etui, the case made from dyed bone giving it an ebonised look with a brass catch.

This lovely etui contains a number of steel implements including a tiny fruit knife made by Hunter, all of which have beautiful carved mother of pearl handles.

There is an ornate pair of scissors, a sterling silver thimble with ornate decorative engraving, fully
hallmarked Birmingham, 1889, James Swann.

The thing I love the most about this etui is the lovely propelling pencil, it is so beautifully decorated with a tiny wax seal at the end which features a bird and some foliage, the propelling pencil is in unmarked white metal.

A lovely unusual little set, it is mostly complete there is a section for a smaller pair of scissors but they are not with the set and I think it is one implement short, it is in a good antique condition, the thimble has a small hole in the very top, the fruit knife has a small chip in the mother of pearl and one of the tools has a chip in and this has made it loose.

The approx measurement of the case overall is: 5.5" width, 3" length and 0.5" height.
