Gilded Etui

Amazing gilded etui or travelling set with beautiful floral decoration pressed out of the metal. 

It contains a full set of tiny tools – 2 gilt hexagonal handles which fit into each other, and into which the tightly bladed corkscrew worm can be screwed as well as the two knife blades or the two-prong fork.  There are scissors with folding handles which open out, gilded bodkin and tweezers, bone note pad and gilded tube which may be a pencil (incomplete)

Late 18th Century.

Condition very good – some rusting on worm which may have lost tiny tip.  Some discolouration around hanging ring on the top of the case.

See Giulian – 18th C Corkscrews – page 69 for similar example.
