#6086 Miniature Etui Miniature Etui - This wonderful little etui measures just 1" x 1 1/2" x 2 3/4" high. It is made of a gilded metal (brass, I think) and is hand engraved with birds, flowers and paired hearts. So, perhaps it was meant to be a gift from a young gentleman for his lady. The tools inside include tiny scissors (just 2 1/4"), bodkin/earspoon, stiletto, pencil topper and tweezers/file. Believed to be late 18th century.
