A silver wirework / filigree bodkin case c 1800.

In excellent condition- slightly indented in the centre due to too much pressure being applied when opening it.

 Filigree sewing tools were popular at the beginning of the 19th century with well known silversmiths specialising in making filigree toys.

Few pieces have any sort of silver mark as light weight pieces of small silver were exempt and also due to the nature of the material. Just occasionally the makers initials can be found.
