Charming little Palais Royale style sewing etui, actually made of foiled card, in very good condition. It is decorated with brass fittings and mounts, and 4 vere eglomise portraits. Inside, there are some of the doubtless original contents; always so much fun with these little antique collectables. These include a black glass button, sewing bits and bobs, a wood thread winder, steel button hook, a small wooden cotton reel, a shell, cow bone file and a brass thimble. Circa 1870, this is adorable!
