Absolute incredible, the quality of this needle case that still has its original needle. The needle has a little spoon at the end that was used either as ear spoon or snuff spoon. The needle is nicely cut ajour (open work) showing a flower hidden in the little framework of the needle. On the outside of the needle case there is a fencing of wreaths that are executed in green and red gold on a background of yellow gold. The both ends of the needle case are skilfully elaborated with acanthus leaves showing us the influence of the classical style that was so much in fashion in France in the beginning of the 19th Century.
