Antique Victorian Mother Of Pearl & Abalone Card Case C1870's For Sale
An Antique Victorian Mother of Pearl & Abalone Card Case
This is a wonderful antique Victorian card case, made from pieces of mother of pearl and abalone, inlaid into a geometric pattern on top of the wooden case. All the way around the edge of the case are strips of mother of pearl, each side intersected in the centre with a small piece of abalone. The case snaps shut well and the push button opening and hinge are both in good order. On the top edge of the case there is a small piece of what looks like silver, inlaid into the mother of pearl and abalone, which may be for use as a cartouche but is blank.
The case measures approx 10.5cms tall and 8cms wide and is ingood condition for an item of this age. There are a couple of pieces of the mother of pearl which have cracks and the bottom corner on the hinge side has a very slight chip in the mother of pearl, which is hardly noticeable.
