GOLD NEEDLE CASE.
LATE 18TH CENTURY
Alternate Text

Gold, octagonal needle case. The polished sides of the case are framed with a simple gold band which is in turn surrounded by a thin band of sanded gold. This type of case is characteristic of the Neoclassic style that appeared at the end of the 18th century, breaking away from the rich, asymmetric Rocaille style. This case, with its geometric decoration and its carefully studied play with light, belongs to Neoclassicism.
