A traveling outfit of cuticle and manicure tools, all except the scissors fitted with lustrously glowing handles of white ocean pearl oyster (Pinctada maxima), and including: cuticle tools, ear wax spoon, scissors, letter opener/paper slitter, corn knife, quill blade, and a button hook. The one empty position probably held a nail file, blackhead tool, or tweezers.
The tools are bright, clean, and sharp, with no dings or damage. The roll-up textured-leather case and pink satin lining are intact and unfrayed, showing only moderate signs of usage, with snaps that are still solidly attached and snappy. Kit size is 6 1/4" x 2 3/4" x 1" when rolled, opening to 10" x 9 1/2".
