Featuring a delightful hummingbird in the air, about to seek its tasty reward in the foliage, this is a charming vintage calling card case. Fitted with a chain so one can 'wear' and carry it, it has the same, complete design on both sides. The ring at the end of the chain is meant to be worn on a finger when one is carrying it.
With multiple textures gracing the background design, the leaves are polished against a basket-weave trellis background. The wings of the hummingbird are beautifully feathered, as is the body, and the head is completed with a distinguishing texture.
There are no marks on the case and it did not test for sterling, so silver content is unknown. We left the patina on it so the new owner can decide whether or not to polish it. It measures 3 5/8" x 2 3/8 x 5/16." It weighs 101.3 grams.
