So rare to find, and with marks dating this one squarely to the Napoleon era, French control mark is the rooster, or cock mark for 1798-1809, Paris. We've shown the diamond-shaped touch mark that identifies the goldsmith, also, but we have not yet researched that mark in order to know exactly which of the note Paris goldsmiths actually created this set. If we locate the name, we'll add to our description. If your reference books have it, please email and let us know, and thank you in advance for having done so. The set is complete, with consideration to the needle case being a contemporary but replacement one. We know this from the size and mis-fitted recess in the case, but the design and period are well matched. The thimble is remarkable, as are the very sharp embroidery scissors with 18k gold handles. The lid to the small perfume flask is also marked and is 18k gold, as is that fabulous combination ear wax spoon/bodkin. The old original case is in superb condition for age and type, and even the original mirror still graces the interior of the lid. A magnificent and very early set. The French implements are heavy, the set without the glass bottle comes to a hair under 20 grams. Owing to the dating and the quality, one can almost assume this was owned by a Royal or courtier of the French Empire, and being thus, very likely has been in presence of Josephine, if not Napoleon. Sets such as this were not found in lesser homes, and represent the finest of goods, likely to have been commissioned directly, or had from the Palais Royal boutiques. I can tell you, I have seen lesser sets in museum collections around the world. This is a superb set!
Very good to excellent condition for age and type. The original gold-embossed leather covered etui is remarkably fine for age, and to open it is a joy - the stunningly beautiful 18k gold sewing implements within are all so beautiful and clean, opulent. The only thing to note by way of flaw is a chip to the rim of the tiny perfume flask which is covered by the 18k gold cap (we've shown it well in our photos for your examination), and the other flaw being that a replacement 18k gold needle case is housed with the set, as mentioned above.

We always honor a 3-day return on our items, and guarantee them to be as described. Money back, less shipping costs, which are not refundable, so ask questions if necessary. We're easy to deal with.


Shipping and Handling Policy:


You are very important! Our fine inventory is very important. And your ranking of our performance is also very important! We wish to keep our 4.9 - 5 star ratings in all categories. Customer satisfaction is paramount with us, so if you're thinking we have not deserved your highest marks, please contact us and allow us to be sure your concerns are completely satisfied before you rank us. We aim for 5-star transactions every day, and depend upon you to tell us directly if we have not yet met that standard for your transaction. Thank you! We most often use USPS for our shipping needs but will be happy to ship by another carrier if you prefer.

We charge only actual postage & insurance, never a handling fee and never for packaging materials. is now requiring that our clients rank us on "shipping". The shipping price, speed and handling are actually under the sole control of the delivering postal agency, not Antiques & Uncommon Treasure so please remember that and leave us high DSR rankings. As always, please also feel free to contact us if you have any problems or concerns, we'll do what we can to ensure a happy and mutually enjoyable transaction.


Insurance has been eliminated as an option by , forcing us sellers to either ship your items without insurance or assume that expense also. We always insure our items BUT, more importantly, pack them extremely well knowing that most are not replacable. Again, damage in transit, while rare in our experience, is due to the postal agency handling and not caused by Antiques & Uncommon Treasure. Please remember that when leaving DSR ratings. Thanks!


Our shipping days are Tuesday and Friday, paid items will be shipped on the first shipping day after payment is recieved (except when special circumstances exist). We prefer to use USPS whenever possible, and require all packages to be insured. If you prefer another method of shipment, please mention it.

Wood crate charge, when applicable, is a flat $35.00 in addition to actual postage & insurance charges.
