Antique Art Nouveau Silver Sapphire Card Case Box

$ 550.00

I found the most elegant and stylish silver calling card case on my last trip to London. For half a moment I wavered as I ask to see it, thinking it was all wrong for today's business cards, the size and shape being altogether different than the the average modern business card. And really, what else could it be practically used for? But then again I thought to myself, would an average person chose such a fabulous Art Nouveau treasure from which to dispense their private number? No, that person would most certainly custom order their cards!

This antique Art Nouveau sterling calling card case was handcrafted most likely in Germany, just after the turn of the century. It features a tailored, repoussed organic motif on the front lid finished with a bezel set sapphire accent. This rectangular piece measures 58.5 x 51.7 x 5.1 mm and it weighs 24.8 grams. It has bears the European '800' mark to indicate its silver purity, as well as two other marks that are too worn to be identified.

Why not make a statement next time your decide to leave your calling card?
