This antique folder is a bit unusual in that most I have owned or seen in the past are Papier Mache or brass. This one is wood which has been deeply carved with fern fronds. The background appears to have been punched with various styles of punches. This could be called Poker Work. It is English. The spine and inside is lined in blue satin. The inside has a pocket on the left for storing letters and/or papers. There is a band on the right side for the same purpose. The front has an oval center which is carved with a crown and the initials SK and a third letter which could be a C. The back is carved and punched with an identical design with the omission of the monogram. It is in outstanding condition. Minor soil to the satin on the right side. Makes a great gift or desk accessory. It measures 10" x 12".
