Lovely antique French Napoleon III era solid shimmering mother of pearl "carnet bal", a chatelaine style dance card or fan style notepad with chain & finger ring! A wonderful little treasure, this is a palm-sized carnet du bal, or note card, fans out to reveal the leaves upon which one would note the names of suitors and which dance you'd promised them. Such were the extravagances offered the patrons of the old Palais Royal boutiques. A center of theater, dining, socializing among the Royals and the world's most celebrated elite. A collection of such remainders of a grand time make an eye catching small collection on a tabletop or at your dressing table.

Very good to excellent condition. Missing the little pencil that would be held in the inside loops but I see no chips, no cracks or other damage. See pictures for measurements.
