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...

Antique Gold Inlaid Tortoise Shell Folding Knife * Circa 1780

Antique Gold Inlaid Tortoise Shell Folding Knife * Circa 1780
The blade of this very rare and early tortoise shell fruit knife is solid silver (tests 800/1000 pure). The sides are inlaid with incredibly fine gold wire. The buttons at each rivet test solid 18 Kt gold and I'm sure the inlay is as well. The carved tortoise shell scales have lovely patina and are in excellent condition with no damage save for couple of tiny edge insect nibbles. The blade is intact and also in great condition with no bends or nicks. It closes well and dates from the middle to the late 18th century. It measures 2 7/8" closed and 5 3/8" open and is French....

Antique Carved Ivory Flower Vinaigrette * Circa 1830

Antique Carved Ivory Flower Vinaigrette * Circa 1830
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....
