This is an interesting small piece to hang on a chatelaine or watch chain. It is of brass with four small turquoise-coloured stones inset onto the front. There are three slots with slides and when these are individually pressed they reveal a copper pencil with lead, a buttonhook and a manicure item. The condition of the brass is good for age although there are some marks and small darker stains on the front which do not appear to be easily removable. Despite this, this is an intriguing and compact étui for three necessary tools and would look attractive added to a chatelaine or to a watch chain. Length 2 ins (5cm). Weight 16 grams.
