As Seen in Victorian Homes Magazine
Rare to find in this condition, this French Palais Royale Needle Case is made with two hand carved sides of Mother of Pearl, each side has an ornate floral design of a large Lily carved in the shell. Dates to the early 1830's, and was most likely part of a larger Palais Royale sewing set.
Joined together by pink silk, the inside is chamois leather to hold the precious needles. Two whisper thin white silk ribbons can be tied together, I'm not sure if these are replacements added long ago when the original silk shredded from use. Beautiful condition and a wonderful addition to your collection of sewing antiques.
