Bone Etui - Carved from bone, the case of this etui features a gilt plaque on the front that has not been engraved. The interior of the fitted case is
lined in cream silk and purple velvet. The tools include silver scissors and thimble as well as a steel bodkin and
a needlecase and stiletto with a bit of a wash on them. The wash has mostly worn away, so the end result is
that all of the tools look good together and good in the case. They are not however, all original to the case. I
think that the needlecase and stiletto are original while the other tools are replacements. They are however, good replacements that fit the case very well.
The condition of the tools is good. The condition of the case is only fair. The case does not close tightly and
the two side edges have several gouges in the ivory in addition to a small crack near the plaque on the top.
