Exceptional Antique Sculpted Mother of Pearl Card Case

This fabulous card case boasts a rare and well wrought sculpted bouquet of flowers, which is raised in high relief from the surface of the case. In addition, a diamond shaped abalone trim frames the floral cartouche. The abalone trim is surrounded by a mother of pearl diamond band that lends this case an additional sense of depth. Absolutely magnificent and rare! The mother of pearl is of the highest quality, with subtle rainbow reflections that vary with the lighting. Included in the case are several cards belonging to the original owner(s), Mary Ann McCune & Emma McCune, of 1830 W Green St. Condition is very good. The only 'flaw' is that the latch isn't tight. An easy enough repair, if desired. Dimensions: over 3 1/2" long, 2 1/2" wide, & over 1/2" deep (including the relief).
