Description

Each side of this aide memoire is beautifully embossed, one with a formal landscape garden scene with peacocks and city in the distance. There are engraved initials of the Birks family set within a foliate scrolling border.
The other side depicts a troubadour playing a mandolin to two seated young ladies. This scene is set within a formal garden landscape, surrounded by further foliate scrollwork.
This piece bears the original green silk interior with note board and pencil.
Bearing two sets of hallmarks for Birmingham 1899 and initials H.M for Henry Mathews Vittoria Street.
This is one of the nicest examples that I have seen, coming direct from the descendants of the family whose collection was of the highest quality.
