Antique Ivory Toothpick Case with Turquoises & Gold Piqué * C18

Antique Ivory Toothpick Case with Turquoises & Gold Piqué * C18
This very high quality little English toothpick box is carved from real ivory. The top has designs created with very fine gold piqué work and is set with four cabochon turquoises. The push button, hinge and cartouche all test solid 9 Ct gold and I imagine the piqué work is as well. Inside the top is a braid bordered mirror and the bottom is lined with velvet. Everything looks to be original. The condition is excellent with no chips or cracks and it snaps closed properly. The hinge plates on the back have been covered with ivory panels, but that was done when it was made. It measures 2 1/4" x 7/8" and has wonderful ivory grain and pat...

This antique vinaigrette is carved of ivory with a beautifully carved flower design on the top. The top unscrews as does the inside pierced partition. A piece of cotton or sponge saturated with perfume would have been placed under the pierced grate. The condition is excellent with no chips, cracks or other damage and it is of extremely high quality. It has lovely old patina and ivory grain pattern. Everything screws together well and it measures almost 1 1/4" in diameter. This would clean up beautifully, but I liked the look of the dirt in the recesses....

Antique Carved Ivory Workbox Emery Cushion * C1850

Antique Carved Ivory Workbox Emery Cushion * C1850
This sweet little antique emery is carved of real ivory with turned concentric circles on both sides. It has a nice old patina and ivory grain. The condition is excellent with no chips, cracks or other damage and it measures almost 1" in diameter. It has a pale blue silk cushion and is stuffed with emery powder. The cushion is original and intact. Emeries were used to sharpen and polish the steel needles of the age. Emery powder is a fine grit and the needles were pushed in and out the cushion (seen through the holes) several times. It also removed rust. Some of similar style are shown on p. 136 of Gay Ann Rogers' book "An Illustrated Hi...
