Here is a fine old Victorian to Edwardian era carved Black Forest treasure the likes of which we've never seen. I've had (and have) desk blotters and photo albums, but we've never seen a carnet du bal, 'necessaire' or calling card case such as we're offering here, have you? The carving is immaculate, very detailed and charming! The interior is in fine condition, as well, and is a royal blue silk satin that include pockets for calling cards, a note pad that is removable from the case. RARE, indeed, it's going to be a 'MUST have' for the carnet du bal collectors so Black Forest collectors better move fast!
Excellent condition, no chips or breaks and even the old original silk-fitted interior lining is very fine, indeed. A RARE treat - I've never seen another.
