Antique Mother of Pearl, Tortoiseshell and Silver Card Case

A real head turner and a remarkable piece of workmanship with inlaid diamond shaped tiles of mother of pearl with edging strips and a central diamond of tortoiseshell. This in turn has a vacant central silver cartouche crying out for someone’s initials.

It is in remarkable condition, so often these have pieces missing and areas of damage but the vacant cartouche and it’s condition lead me to thinking it has hardly been used, if it all. The clasp and hinges work as the should and the red baize interior is slightly worn.

Measuring: 10cm high X 8cm wide X 1cm deep.
