Description and Details
This Victorian silver card case was made by silversmith George Unite in Birmingham 1885.
The exterior features a unique floral motif which has a tessellating (repeating) pattern on both sides of the case.
The cartouche on one side of the case is unmonogrammed and is clean. The external borders feature a curved and scrolled lining which aids in gripping the case in addition to its aesthetic design.
The card case has a few dents and indentations, depending on the angle the case's face appears to be slightly recessed from the borders and there is a small area next to the hinge where a minor split is present.
The case's hinge is smooth but slightly loose with a good closure of the lid.
The case is fully hallmarked with the maker's mark, Birmingham assay, silver lion, Victorian head and the date mark.
