Description

A stunning late nineteenth century sewing etui. The egg shaped case formed of two mother of pearl shells, mounted in ormolu.

Depressing the foliate handle releases the shell halves from a clasp, revealing a gilt metal stand in which are presented a complete and original set of sewing implements, comprising scissors, glass phial, bodkin, needle, thread/pin case and thimble.

Palais Royal manufacture, by virtue of its inimitable design and quality of construction.

A similar example can be seen in, 'Mother of Pearl Antiques and Collectibles', by Meyer, Meyer and Martin, page 116, plate 103.

Oval alabaster base, with further ormolu mounts. Hand fashioned brass nut beneath, together with a hand written label, which may suggest a curated past.

An exquisite little etui in remarkably complete and brilliant condition.
