The bone needlecase has a very nice engraved exterior showing birds and butterflies. In the early 1800?s lovely sewing tools and other objects ornately carved of ivory and bone were sold in the Marketplaces of Canton, China. The carvings on these objects were often of exquisitely intricate detail and depth. They are more decorative and pictorial than the Indian pieces of the same period, often bearing lovely village or garden scenes.
