Description (Brief)
This set consists of five tools, all enclosed in a cream celluloid case shaped like a key. "Hamburg" is printed on the key's shaft, so this was probably a German souvenir. The tools are also made of celluloid except for one needle, which is wood. No other markings are on the set.
