This antique Gorham sterling silver card case was made in 1871 and bridges the Victorian and Aesthetic design period with its bright cut engraving in repeating geometric designs with fleur de lis accents on both front and back. The case also has a fancy center medallion with the name Lucy Deming monogrammed in script that likely could be buffed out to add a new one. This elegant accoutrement is the perfect size to accommodate business and credit cards and cash and it's slim size allows it to fit into a pocket without affecting the line of an outfit. This silver case bears the Gorham lion rampart, anchor and G hallmark and is also marked Sterling, and the letter D indicating the year it was made and 21 which is the style number of the piece. The case has a top side hinge that opens and closed easily and securely and measures 3 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches by 3/8 inch, and weighs approximately 52.81 grams. The condition is antique wonderful, there is a ding on the right hand side about 1/3 of the way down, one in the medallion, and one on the back in the middle of the top part, there are a a few scratches. In my opinion, none of these significantly detract from the exquisite workmanship and design and are age appropriate for a case that is well over a hundred years old. This petite piece of paraphernalia is not only a unique way to express individuality, it's a perfect, pocket sized, purse proxy.
