Silver sewing tools, Palais Royal sewing box.
Every thing inside and outside is in excellent condition. The same black marks that are in the lid mirror are caused by the mercury leaking caused by oxygen leaking. It is proof of it being the original glass, possibly kept in a cool climate. You can have the mirror changed but it is inadvisible because todays mirror glass is so much heavier and thicker.
