Beautiful Vintage Hand Engraved Islamic Solid Silver Debit / Credit Card Case:
Beautiful hand engraved IslamicSolid Silver Card Case.
In very good condition.
All finely hand made from guaranteed solid silver and featuring intricate hand engraved arabesques.
There is a hallmark inside consisting of three parts. The one on the left indicates that it was tested in the Assay office at Alexandria in Egypt and found to have a silver purity of 80%, typical of most continental silver. The mark in the middle is a lotus flower, the egyptian equivalent of the english lion passant silver guarantee mark. The mark to the right is a date letter and I think this would date the piece to around the year 2000.
Tactile and beautifully proportioned at 93mm x 57mm x 6mm, perfect for holding Debit Cards or Credit Cards, Driving licences etc. It weighs a creditable 78g or 2.75oz of solid silver.
