BEAUTIFUL NAPOLEON III LADIES INLAID WOODEN ETUI / NECESSAIRE W/CONTENTS. Antique sewing etui, necessaire, sewing kit in inlaid wooden case with soft dark red lining. The contents is believed to be original however i cannot be certain - consisting of scissors, needle case, thimble and a'pricker'. The exterior of the wooden case is in overall good condition. With no apparent losses, minimal surface scratches. Light marks are present overall but this is to be expected with age. The top features a lovely flower design. Working push-button clasp to open the etui with a strong catch and solid functioning hinges. The silver contents each have typically ornate decoration in the French Rococo manner. I have been unable to find hallmarks which is not unusual with French items. Gold handled scissors are a lovely feature to this box. While the scissors don't quite meet perfectly at the tip they. There are some wear/marks on these.

Look closely at the detailed design in the gold on the handles. Matching gold coloured thimble bares a few marks and minor dinks. The needle case comes together well, again the top section is a little dented. This comes apart/together again very easily and is clean. Finally, the'pricker' is in good condition, all in the matching design with the needle case.

Some wear marks also as to be expected. Width 65 mm at top. Please see the attached photos which are an integral part of this description. All items are described to the best of my knowledge.

Please appreciate that all items are antique/vintage/used and thus are likely to show varying degrees of age related wear. The item "BEAUTIFUL NAPOLEON III LADIES INLAID WOODEN ETUI / NECESSAIRE WithCONTENTS C. 1860" is in sale since Saturday, December 12, 2020.
