Lovely antique silver card case by Sampson Mordan. More than just a card case though as it has a built in pencil which can fit into either side depending whether you're left or right handed. Full hallmark for London and the date letter for 1905, this is stamped inside the flap as well as in the front. Also has the Sampson Mordan stamp to the inside. Unusual as the flap to open it is hinged and spring loaded, still has a really good snap to it. Will hold modern business cards easily as you can see from the picture. Monogramed to the front, lovely script that actually looks more like decoration than initials. Would polish out if you wanted to get that done. The pencil still has it's lead in place. The silver weight is 123.8 grams. Happy to answer any questions.
Measures 3 3/8 inches 8.5 cm tall, 3 3/4 inches 9.5 cm wide and 3/8 inch 1.1 cm deep. The silver weight is 123.8 grams.
