Description and Details
This intricate solid silver card case was made during the Victorian era by silversmith Taylor & Perry of Birmingham in 1898.
Both sides of the case are intricately hand-engraved with multiple types of foliate and floral motifs split into sections by further engine-turned embellishments.
The rear side of the case features an unmonogrammed cartouche - ideal for adding personal initials/engravings - potential evidence of previous 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.
The edges of the case are additionally curved and add to the overall elegant and fine aesthetics of this Victorian card case.
Full set of hallmarks are clearly present on the side on bezel upon which the lid closes.
A wonderful solid silver card case for anyone looking to add a piece of fine Victorian 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.

Good Condition - The card case is in good antique condition with no major damage or issues. The cartouche is slightly worn and some small fine scratches are present next to the bouquet of flowers (Shown in the last image) - however, these do not detract from the usage of this item. The lid has some slight compression and as such is sometimes a little misaligned but will close properly. Please refer to the photographs to examine the condition in further detail.
