Remainders from a fully fitted out Victorian era sewing box, we have a set of 7 pieces, 6 spools and 1 matching retractable measuring tape, all in ivory and carved mother of pearl. For your own use or to fill out your own antique sewing box or table. I've had them for decades, anticipating finding a perfect chest for them, but probably forgot we owned them and perhaps a few boxes have come and gone without me thinking to marry these to a chest. Typically, one would find sets like this in the old English papier mache or walnut sewing boxes.  Perhaps you have just the spot. Full measurements are noted on our photos.

Very good to excellent condition for age and type. There are no breaks or chips to any of these 7 pieces. They survive beautifully, strong and ready to use.  Center posts are brass, original. No looseness on any. The ribbon of the measuring tape seems it might be a replacement, and I have not pulled it out further. Retracts by turning the top, which rewinds ribbon into the case.  

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.
