Antique Tortoise Calling Card Case

Just a beautiful antique tortoise shell, from the 1800's long before the ban on the material, a lovely calling card case with intricately and deeply carved dragons in the center. The back is plain. Inside both sides hold cards, and a card of the prior owner is still inside. This lovely piece measures 3 & 1/2" by 2 & 3/8" and is in good structural condition with wear on the spine with a little missing shell., fading on the interior silk on the edges, etc.The openwork dragon carving is fabulous and much lovelier than the photos.
