A very sweet little oval case made of faux pearl with gilt mounts and set with an eglomise picture of an untitled French building ( does anybody recognize it? ) c1860
Inside, after flipping up the catch, there's a pink velvet tray which houses a pair of mini scissors and thimble both of gilt metal. The tray can be removed and then reveals a small space for other items also lined with pink velvet.

A label on the base reads 'Tahan R. de la Paix'- even now a fashionable shopping area in the centre of Paris.

French circa 1860.

The oval box measures 7.5 x 4 cm
The scissors are 4.5cm long

 

The set is in excellent condition with just a small hairline in the lid which is barely noticeable- see last two photos.
