A charming sewing set, thimble and egg-shaped etui or case in fine 19th century carved ivory with glass beadwork trim. Dates mid to late 1800s, Napoleon III or Victorian era, and presents beautifully. Sewing tool, sweet little etui. Full measurements noted on the photos.

Very good to excellent condition for age and type, I can point out a couple of the old glass beads missing but not much. Sewing collector's dream item, there are no breaks, chips, cracks or hairlines in either the thimble or the case. From my collections of decades, being disbursed.

IMPORTANT NOTE regarding antique tortoise shell or ivory: We are great supporters of protection for endangered species in our modern world. We never buy or sell anything 100 years or newer; we donate to anti-poaching organizations; we don't hunt; we conserve in ways that impact global warming (we're totally solar at home), knowing those measures also protect the animals in the wild today. We also recognize the vast cultural history we preserve with our care and reverence for these antique objects, and agree with CITES that objects over 100 years of age have nothing whatsoever to do with species depletion in our current world. 

Our offering exceeds the age limitation of "more than 100 years of age", and is well within the exemption for CITES regulation. If imported, met the CITES regulation. This item will be handled and shipped from our Utah business, and is not available for shipment internationally, nor within the USA to California, NY, Nevada, Hawaii, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington if it contains ivory, sorry. Please see our small print for more details.
