Antique English Mother of Pearl & Tortoise Shell Calling Card Case

While I have seen many calling card cases over the years, this beautiful mother of pearl and tortoise shell has to be a favorite. I purchased this case 13 years ago while living in England. The case has a mother of pearl diamond pattern with a 1/4" border of mother of pearl on the front and back.

The case has a scalloped outside edge finished in beautiful tortoise with a silver push button to open the case. The case opens in accordion style with 11 slots for cards. The inside of the case is lined in a beautiful cobalt blue silk fabric.

This would be a great addition to a calling card collection or as a great display piece on it's own.

Measures: 4 1/4" W x 3" H x 3/4" D

Item ID: M 20
