The large, slightly tapering, case is decoarted with wide bands of basket weave designs and horizontal prick dot bands. The hinged cover opens up to reveal six compartments, each containing a steel knife, with swivelling tortoiseshell covers. This is the first time we have seen a case which still has all of its original knives. All pieces are in excellent condition. A very rare item, which must have been owned by a very wealthy Doctor.

Length: 2.5 inches, 6.25cm.
