This mother of pearl card case has engraved flowers and leaves on each tile and dates from Victorian times. The pearl is actually turbo marmoratus so it has a plump cushion effect on each tile. This highlights the delicate pink and green colours in the pearl shell. There is a tiny repair to one tile on the back. It measures 4″ x 3 1/16″ x 3/8″. With good nickel silver monogram panel, catch and hinge. It snaps shut securely.
