Antique French silver figural needle case, circa 1800s.
Woman wearing a fancy turban with jewels, a necklace, shirt that comes to her calves and her ankles are showing. Embossed flowers and facial features are all in high relief. Excellent condition.
Case is marked with the boar’s head for Paris and there is also a maker’s mark in the lozenge but I cannot be sure who the mark is for as it is too indistinct.
5.6 cm high and in excellent condition.
