Leather Concertina Business Calling Card Case
Victorian, 19th Century
Dark green/black tooled morocco leather
Lined with green silk moiré
Spring loaded concertina
English, Circa 1870s
Measures 10.5 long x 7.2 cm wide x 1.2 cm deep
Dark green/black morocco leather impressed with a lattice pattern and tooled with gilt lines. Slides open to allow spring-action concertina with gilded edges to fan out the cards. Enough space for approximately 10 large business cards.
Very good condition. Slight wear over 150-or-so years. Slight pea-sized impression on lattice on one side. Suitable for a man or a woman, eminently practical and usable. A beautiifully designed and delicately refined case.
