Wonderful Georgian Black Shagreen Etui C 1780 

A fabulous shagreen etui. 

Dating to c1780, the case is covered with the finest quality shagreen 

The Lid is Hinged and in good condition it has a 

push button release to open the lid which closes securely with a nice clicking sound

once open it reveals tool compartments in the lower part of the Etui.

Condition: in good condition, on the facing and top of the etui there are signs it once had some sort of decoration mounted which is no longer there, that being said it doesn’t detract all from its  rare beauty, just mentioned for accuracy. (please see photos).
