A very fine and exceptionally large Victorian carnet de bal, or dance card, with plaques inlaid with gold, and six pages inside in a fine material. The front plaque is inlaid with gold scalloped and filigree decoration. It still maintains its original vermeil, or gold plated silver, pencil with a rosette end. The pencil telescopes to descend the pencil lead; the end unscrews revealing a compartment with more lead pieces. The pages fan out and clip together nicely into a tab that is hallmarked with a boar's head (for silver gilt) and a maker's mark "L. B.". It measures 3" x 1 ¾ ", and when folded it is ¼ " thick. The carnet is in very good condition, no splits, chips or cracks, noting only a small loss to the gold inlay on the front right side. This stunning little treasure has been in the same collection for 50 years.
