Nope! You really can't have too many of these fabulous antique French carnet du bal, or necessaires in shell with pique work, or in ivory, or in leather or whatever - they're a fabulous collection subject, and are as wonderful to display as they are appreciated as gifts. Give yourself another one: Here's a beauty! The fine old shell card case/necessaire is as near to pristine as they get; interior silk satin lining is nearly perfect. The only thing you'll need is a tiny thin pencil to slip into the holders which also act as a clasp for the case. Use it for your business cards, or just to thrill the eye. This is a beauty!
