A project set, beautifully preserved lift-out tray which has just 2 of the original sewing tools - a thimble and a needle case. Beautiful burled box is in excellent shape inside and out, and certainly worthy of searching out other sewing implements to complete it. You see the fittings for a pocket knife, a crochet tambour, a folding pen, tweezer and ear wax spoon, and scissors. The set likely came from the old Palais Royal boutiques originally, and fitted as it is, openings in lower level for inkwells, seems like a gentleman's desk or writing set. Measurements noted on photos.

Very good condition for age and type, beautiful interior and exterior, fine quality. Missing tools. Photos show all.

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.
