Tortoise Shell / Tortoiseshell Calling Card Case

This is wonderful cushion shaped tortoise shell card case. It features blonde tortoise shell with cognac flames, the flaming gives it an out of focus blurriness that is quite beautiful. Each panel is divided by pewter stringing and curves down giving it the cushion shape. The top has an empty pewter plaque for a monogram. It is in excellent condition with original velvet lining, good working hinge and push button action. The tortoise shell has a small crack at the hinge (see picture) but it does not effect it's function. Circa 1850, Size 4 1/8" long X 3" wide.
