late Victorian inlaid Horn Empty Etui case. 
This etui case I would estimate c 1870 has no tools inside the  cream silk lined and cream velvet interior. 
The exterior has a beautiful double framed gold coloured border,and a silver and gold ornate design to the centre. 
The condition of the etui is good considering its over 119  years of age with some of the inner gold boarder line missing which is normal  age related wear but does not detract from its elegance mentioned for accuracy. 

 If this box could talk I can just imagine what  fascinating stories it could tell, this is so very tactile and once held it has  the most wonderful feel. This will add something very special to any  collection; 

Please be sure to study the photos as they are an 
integral part of the description. 

An unquestionably exquisite and fine addition for any uncompromising collector or as a display piece.
