  • -

    Thimble, pins, needles and thread holder. Superb quality, engraved around the egg's rim 'Laurent Palais Royal54' which may stand for 1854 or the number of egg etudes made. The egg opens to reveal a small thimble with steel top, pins all around the edge. Lift out the thimble to see the little needle and thread holder. The amazing engine turning, difficult on an egg shape feels like satin. There is a very small dent towards the base. The clasp is engraved. The initials engraved in the cartouche are decorative rather than legible.

    Approx 2 1/2 long

    Approx 7 cm
