This is an amazing antique memo pad or dance card holder in high Art Nouveau style. Made of silver plate, the folding case is attached to a chain and ornate clip that would attach to a lady’s waistband as part of a chatelaine. It still retains its original tiny pencil which fits in the side of the case, keeping it closed. The top has a spring closure.
The case has a great Art Nouveau embossed design on the front & back, as does the front of the clip. The pencil has a celluloid top and wire loop. There is a small calendar, not original, inside the case, dated 1936, but it fits well.
Measures 2 3/4” h x 1 5/8” w. Chain is 5” long & clip is 1 3/4”. There is some slight wear in a small area on the back of the case and a little residue from polish. This is a special, hard to find piece & sure to be a welcome addition to any jewelry, vanity, or Art Nouveau collection.
