Help! I think this is Dutch, and from all comparable aspects of the way it's made and packaged, I think it's earliest 1800s, contemporary to the more elaborate French cases and etui from the Palais Royal. It's got the most wonderful figural needle case. I can't find one like it in any of my sewing tools collector reference books, though. Anyone out there who collects and can give me some more details? Thanks for your help!

    Hello ,
    It is a real curios .
    Imagine how hard it is to use a square handle scissors ....
    Any way , it is seldom to find a complete box.
    Generaly pieces have been appart
    It is probably German ,Netherlans or from Austria, well north European area .
    Only the marks can help us .It is not French anyway
