Gorgeous antique French Napoleon III or Victorian era 6" sewing etui, an elegant casket with shimmering mother of pearl parquet or marquetry "quilted" exterior, sterling silver cartouche and a host of steel & mother of pearl handled tools or implements inside! Stunning! We've had this style of pearl veneered box in the past, some tea caddies, some sewing boxes, some inkwell stands and stationery caskets, all beautiful with diamond shaped mother of pearl tiles giving them a quilted look. This one with canted lid edges and a large machined or engraved sterling silver cartouche set into the center. The interior filled with sewing and/or vanity implements including pearl handled folding knife, cork screws, button hook, stiletto and more. A beautiful decorative box here, don't miss it!

Very good condition. We're sure that the contents are somewhat of a mismatched collection of replacements but they fit for the most part and just add to the value of the box itself (especially that fabulous little folding knife with pearl handle, the handle engraved with what looks like "Fables d'Olonne"). See pictures for measurements.
