A stunning specimen of agate distinguishes this diminutive French sewing nécessaire. The segments of beautiful hard stone are perfectly complemented by Rococo-inspired gold accents, making it more an objet d’art than simply a sewing case. Inside, instruments including a penknife, pencil, scissors, slip, bodkin and tweezers are nestled within the fitted interior. A work of art inside and out, this exquisite nécessaire is a wonderful collector’s piece.
