A Victorian period abalone and Mother of Pearl card case with hinge opening and button catch. There is a small plaque at the top of the case for the owner's initials which is still un-personalised. The interior has a red fabric liner. In good condition with a lovely geometric pattern. This case probably dates from the 1850s - 1880s.

Good condition commensurate with age and light usage. Some minor surface rubs here and there but in overall very good condition. Hinge works well as does the catch which open and closes cleanly.
