antique Mother of Pearl handled dressing table tools


Antique mother of pearl handled tools from a sewing or vanity kit– very often personal grooming items were included in sewing boxes. These three have heavy, smoothly rounded and polished translucent shell handles with steel fittings: a button hook (for gloves or boots), a cuticle pusher and a tweezers (in the middle). The button hook is about 4-1/2″ high, the cuticle pusher about 3″.

The condition is very good. There is a natural flaw in the shell handle of the tweezers but it is stable and very unlikely to crack.
