This is an excellent, very pretty, faux tortoiseshell pique lady’s case for cards and manicure. Dated circa 1870, it is beautifully inlaid with gold, silver, and delicate mother-of-pearl decoration in the form of butterflies and flowers. The silver cartouche has been left blank for personal engraving of a name or initials. The silk-lined interior, which has several compartments and a carborundum square. is in good order. The long hinge is strong and the case snaps tightly shut. This is a lovely, rare piece in good order. The front, inlaid panel is excellent. The back shows some very minimal wear. In all, this is a superb item.
Length: 14.3cm (just over 6.5 inches)
Width: 8cm (just over 3 inches)
