This exquisite carnet was once given as a gift, from a friend to a friend, and bears the engraved inscription on the spine, "Souvenir d'Amitie" (remembrance of friendship). It dates from 1890-1910 and originates from Chartres.

The solid silver frame (no marks visible) is 3/16" wide around the front and back panels. It is delicately engraved with scrolling leaves. There are fine brocade panels of fabric on the face of the front and back panels, with flowers in blue and pink. The interior has two rings on either side which interlock when closed to hold the silver pencil (no lead remaining). The lining is of ivory moire silk, the right hand side has a pocket.

The case measures 3 3/4" x 2 7/8" x 1/4" thick (when closed). When open it measures 5 3/4" across. It remains in good antique condition. The brocade has a slight spot of discolor on the top left corner of the back panel. The pencil has no remaining lead. Otherwise, it is solid and sound, very useable. The silver is in good condition.

It would make an elegant business card case or a pretty accessory to ornament an antique lady's desk.
