Victorian Sterling Silver & Celluloid Note Card, Pencil Hallmarked 1889

If you don't have your iPhone handy, jog your memory with with this one of a kind item from 1889!

This rare and unusual artifact from the Victorian Era is an early note pad--using the attached small pencil which can be removed from holder rings, promised dances, things to do and other important things to remember, were jotted on the celluloid. The celluloid can be wiped clean for the next use.

The flat piece at the back of the top pivots to tuck into a dress waist to hold. Or, it can be tucked into the bottom of the tab into the curved silver piece on the celluloid (either side) to wrap around a purse or whatever.

This beauty was acquired in England and is hallmarked sterling silver, made in Birmingham, 1889. The silver work is magnificent and ornate. The photos probably describe it better than we can in words!

Excellent vintage condition. There are two small dents in the silver framing the celluloid, on the side away from the pencil and at the bottom. We have not polished the silver. Total length is 6 1/4". Width of celluloid with frame is 1 1/2". Weight: 26.7 grams
