This is an excellent presentation piece in a fabulous black leather box lined with opulent turquoise satin. The pieces are lavishly turned and carved ox-bone; several designed as needle holders, and others designed to assist the seamstress or the tailor in a way that brings happiness and satisfaction with each new garment they create. There are also items or tools to assist with responding to notes or opening letters. This is a fanciful and decidedly elegant presentation of tools that have been elegantly crafted to assist with every day tasks. The overall condition of this presentation box is generally excellent although the fragile, slender turquoise ribbon attachments between the lid and bottom of the box have separated over the last 100 years. This excellent example displays beautifully. The box measures 7 inches in length and approximately 3 inches in width.
