A very unique and valuable find purchased from the family estate of the original owner.

A matched set in the original box. The shell is decorated with inserted gold plique points done in the classic French style so popular in themid to late 1800's.

The card case is lined in silk with the original bone orsimilar substancepencil ( note that the writing end of thepencil may have had a threaded attachment although we are unsure. The case is approx 3' x 4".

The sweet little coin purse is also silk lined and approx 3" x 2".

The items are in very fine condition and may have never been used. The box is also in great ventage condition.

Also included is the original brass plate used for printing calling cards for the owner. This allowed us to trace the provenance of this wonderful set.

It belonged to Emma, the wife ofWheeler de F. Edward a prominent attorney who settled in Everett, Washington in the early 1880's. Emma Leffert Knox was born in 1854, graduated from Columbia and married in 1881. The initials on the gold medallions are E.L.K. which would be prior to her marriage..perhaps a birthday or coming outgift.

Just a fine and rare set.
