Antique English Inlaid Tortoiseshell and Mother of Pearl Card Case

A beautiful antique calling card case, dating to the mid to late 19th century. This fine example is an English piece, and is far from the typical card case. Both sides are stylistically beveled and curved, and inlaid with genuine tortoise shell and mother of pearl. The cartouche to the top is blank, and was never engraved. Comes with the handwritten card that was found with the case.

Condition: Excellent condition, with only minimal wear to the case.

Measurements: 3 3/4 in x 2 3/4 in (9.5 cm x 7 cm)

Item ID: B-36
