The lining for this wonderful case is a water blue silk. The case opens and closes with a hinged snap.

The hallmarks date the card case to 1884, Birmingham England.

One of the hallmarks is the Queen Victoria tariff/duty stamp. Note that the queen's face is facing left to distinguish from Elizabeth II, which faces right.

The initials ‘DBS’ can be found on the top. Measurements: 3 3/4 inches long, 2 3/4 inches and 3/16 inches in depth. This surface and the back cover have an exquisite hand engraving.
