This fabulous etui is made of copper with an ornate pattern of applied brass and twelve bezel set stones. It is entirely hand wrought and is beautiful.
The etui sides slide together for a tight fit. The natural stones are cabochon cut and polished. I cannot confidently identify what each stone is but all are natural and not glass.
The etui is believed to have been made in Turkey and was made before 1950. I do not know its actual age.
It measures 3 inches X 2 3/8 inches X 1 1/2 inches thick. It is in excellent condition. There is one small bead of brass lost. There is no other loss to the ornamental metalwork and no dents or cracks to the etui itself. All stones are excellent – no chips or cracks and all are still tightly bezel set.
