This is a beautiful calling card case, as usable today as it was 100 years ago - so much more elegant than the cases currently available and much more memorable. NOTE: Business cards can be made to any size, so you can easily have some your business cards made to fit the dimensions of this case.
Made of ivory mounted onto leather with sterling additions in the shape of flowers tied with a ribbon. (The back of the case is ivory also, but without the silver bits.) Note the two small chips to the ivory just under the silver decoration in the front. No other damage or discoloration to either of the ivory sides.
The interior of the case is lined with blue silk and stamped with the words: "Austin Dublin"
The silk is original and has some wear to the edges.
The body of the case is brass with a silver plating. The plating is worn around the edges and visible when the case is open. When polished, the wear is far less visible.
The snap closure is tight and secure.
