Measurements: 2 1/2" x 4 1/8" x 3/4" (with replaceable notepad paper in place)
Estate purchase dating to the 1960's. The silver shows some surface abrasion due to age and long use. A jeweler could easily polish the abrasions out. p>Signed "Cartier Sterling 925 Italy" - totally elegant and so much nicer than hunting for a scrap of paper or a Post It.
The wooden base is of fine rosewood.
As noted in the title, the notepad is meant to be used and replaced...

The hinged lid opens and closes perfectly. Nice beadwork and roping detail.
