Charming c. 1900 Hand-engraved Brass Vesta or Card Case with Ballerina

Regular price $65.00

I really love the ballerina hand-engraved on this case, executed with wonderful attention to detail-- from those eyes cast off to one side, to those long fingers and pointed toes, to all of those great ruffles in between! C. 1900 I believe, and I take it for a vesta, for matches, but the knowledgable dealer I purchased it from classified it as a card case. In an event, I think quite a charmer, just the right size to carry around in one's pocket with small necessities inside.

3" t x 2" w x 1" d and in very good condition. Hinged top opens easily and closes tight and flush.
