What's not to like. The Victorians had beautiful accessories. This book cover is made from black lacquered papier mâché. The center is a lovely pale pink rose surrounded by insets of Mother-of-Pearl. There is MOP decoration in the corners as well. The binding in a very worn velvet. It has splits as well. The inside is covered in a patterned paper. It measures 9" x 6". It will accommodate a 1-1 1/2" book. The inside is soiled. The front and back covered on in very good condition. This displays beautifully.
