Antique Miniature Doll's Purse Sewing Etui

English * Circa 1880

This miniature antique etui is in the shape of a little purse and is fitted inside with tiny sewing tools for a lucky little girl's doll. It is made of leather with brass fittings, closure and chain (all original). The fitted top on one side holds a miniature bodkin and needle case (made of bone*) and a silver thimble and brass scissors. The other side of the top has a built in mirror. Inside are more sewing tools, a crochet hook, a painted darner, a silver tape measure and a tomato pin cushion. There are also several little cards with the name "Minnie" hand written on them (a doll's calling cards?).

The case is in excellent condition and closes well with a flip down clasp. It measures almost 2" long by 1" wide.It was once in the collection of Diane Pelham Burn and this is the piece that was photographed in the top plate on p. 37 of her excellent book Sew Precious, Children's Needlework Tools & Dolls' Sewing Tools.

*These items are made of bone from a domestic cow (bovine) and not from an endangered species.
