An unusual egg-shaped silver etui with hinge and button closure. With the sword hallmark just above the hinge (used from 1814) this piece has lovely swirling engraved designs all around, and a Greek key pattern encircling the case from bottom to top where a pendant link is attached. This allows it to be suspended from a chain, a ribbon or cord. The push button releases a clasp and opens the egg to display an empty interior. Once may have held sewing implements or cosmetics.

A lovely object.

Holland, 1800’s.

Overall 60mm; side to side 38mm.
