This is a beautifully patterned antique enamel on brass French calling card case. A bit small for current card sizes, but something one might prefer to just put in your etagere. It could possibly be used as a pillbox.
Country of Origin: France.
Size: 3 inches by 1 3/4 inches.
Condition: Very Good. The hinge and the clasp are in good working order. The raised patterns are tactile and nicely patinated.
Circa: last half of the 19th Century.
