Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
A charming antique Victorian travel sewing etui.

It has a smooth and heavy ebony case with a brass push catch.

Internally there are a variety of tools, some silver plated with mother of pearl handles, some with silver ferrules, a pair of antique steel scissors, a hallmarked silver thimble and a silver plated propelling pencil with a seal top.

All items are showing varying degrees of wear and tear, some points to note are the thimble has holes in the top, some tools are missing pieces of mother of pearl and one tool has come detached completely from the mother of pearl haft.

Whilst some of the tools are certainly usable some are more decorative than anything else.

The seal top pencil is in good condition save for some silver plate loss.

It has an image of what appears to be a bird holding a branch though I could be wrong.

Overall a beautiful decorative sewing set.

The ebony case is smooth and very heavy to hold in the hand.

Condition:
Good used condition overall, thimble has holes, two tools have damaged mother of pearl, one tool missing, general surface wear, commensurate with age.

Approx measurements (cased):
5.5" width
2.75" length
