Attractive playing card box, “bookshelf” design, featuring a lid with what I believe is a burnished image of a fleur-de-lis, framed in an oval and surrounded by scrolls and the 4 suit symbols. The box for the cards slides out of the “book.” There is nothing anywhere on the box to indicate the country of origin, although the suit symbols are French. On the spine of the “book” there are letters: an S, inside an M, inside a C. I do not know the date of the box, but it came to me with a collection of cards that date predominantly from the 1950s-1970s, and it would not surprise me to learn that the box is approximately 50 years old. The interior dimensions of the box are 93mm x 71mm x 20mm, such that it can accommodate a standard size bridge or poker deck that is out of its box. Some boxed decks do not fit comfortably.

I don’t know much about pyrography and am unsure how to describe the condition of the box; hopefully the pictures make it clear. The fleur-de-lis and surrounding art work is fairly primitive, although perhaps that is typical of pyrographic items.

Thanks for visiting.
