Antique mother of pearl Palais Royale chair thimble holder. It has a metal frame with curly q's and a mother of pearl leaf at the bottom. The frame used to have gilt, but now some of the gilt has worn off and the old metal with its wonderful aged patina is showing. There is a size 12 sterling thimble included which has a fancy border. It is unmarked but tests for sterling.
The MOP chair is in very good antique condition, but there is a MOP piece missing on the middle of the top part of the chair. It still is a great piece. It measures 5.75" to the tip of the little snake at the top x 2.5" across the seat.
