French 19th Century, Second Phase of Neoclassicism, Nécessaire de Couture/ Sewing Case
French, c.1800 – 1830, flat sewing case made from wood covered in very thin blue leather with a thin gold embossed decorative line with a catch and push button for opening/closing. Inside reveals an arrangement of the interior fittings and tools: scissors, bodkin with ear scoop, needlecase, stiletto and thimble laying among blue velvet. All are original and in mint condition, the blades on the scissors are steel as well on the stiletto point, typical, with no corrosion. The tools are sterling silver with makers on the needlecase in an Empire style so typical of the period and French design. The top inside interior is lined with white silk with the Name: Alagerbedor, 86 Rue de Rivoli, Paris. This is the person who sold the case not the maker.
