Tula Work Etui - Tula work is a form of gilded decoration on steel, originating in Russia. By clicking on the enlargement for the third picture,
you can see how truly beautiful this technique is on sewing tools. The tools inside the fitted case include
wonderful steel scissors, thimble, needlecase, stiletto and bodkin. All of the tools are original to the set. The
box is ebony inlaid with brass.
The condition of this set is very good. There is a bit of wear in the tula work on the thimble, but no other
problems to the condition of the tools. The box has a hairline crack in the top middle (visible in the first
picture), but no other problems. The button closure works well.
