Antique Miniature Doll's Sewing Etui

French * Circa 1880

This miniature antique etui is in a leather covered oval case and is fitted inside with tiny sewing tools for a lucky little girl's doll. It is lined in the original silk & velvet w/ chenille trim. The fitted tray holds a miniature bone* bodkin, needle case, stiletto, and thimble as well as steel scissors. The tools are all in excellent condition with no damage and the tiny needle case (7/8" long) actually opens and would hold needles, if there were any that small. The little scissors (also 7/8" long) are high quality steel and cut quite well.

The case is in excellent condition and closes well with a flip up brass clasp. It measures 1 7/8" long by 1 1/4" 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. 40 of her 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.
