Fabulous antique Italian gilt embossed leather calling card or business card carrying case, an ornate box with colorful boulle style decoration and wonderful condition! A bit wider than today's business cards but the length is right and what an elegant way to make a first impression, right? No markings but we're sure this is of Italian origins and it's one of three that we're adding this week so be sure to browse some while you're with us. The other two also in embossed leather and stunning! Thanks! This one with blue, red, white & pink additions inside the gold giving it a boulle look like you'd see in those old French caskets with brass & enamel or shell boulle inlays. The inside in two partitions, the larger for cards surely and the smaller likely for a carnet bal type note panel. Wonderful!
Very good condition. There are some slight surface scuffs but no real damage to note. See pictures for measurements.
