Description and Details
This intricate solid silver card case was made during the Georgian era by silversmith Taylor & Perry of Birmingham in 1835.
The card case features a unique design of thistle flowers and buds engraved on both sides of the case
The case features an unmonogrammed cartouche - ideal for adding personal initials/engravings - potential evidence of past removal of engraving.
The hinge and lid of the case function well with a tight closure that will keep all contents inside safely. The case will fit modern credit/debit cards, business cards and a few folded banknotes.
Full set of hallmarks are clearly present on the bottom of the card case.
A wonderful solid silver card case for anyone looking to add a piece of practical and fine silverware to their collection, or as a gift to someone special. Ideal for both display or practical usage - a subtle yet indulging way of standing out from the usual wallets and cases to the modern era.
