I love all the wonderful Victorian Antique items that some call novelties but were very useful like the chatelaine, stamp holders and spectacle cases. This particular case is hallmarked for Birmingham, England 1902-03 and is in good antique condition. It does have denting in the back so please take a look at the pictures. The repousse work is just lovely and it does have the center that has not been engraved which is very unusual. The chatelaine or spectacles hook has openwork of a floral design.
You must admit, this is much nicer than the eye glass cases of today.
