About this Item

N.d., circa mid-19th century. Measuring 10 by 7.5 by 1 1/8 cm, this is a classic card case with two narrow compartments plus tiny pen holder revealed when the top lid is pulled off. One narrow compartment contains a stiff card of an ivory or ivory-like material which was used for erasable pencil notes. Both sides of it are filled with what appear to be very old shopping lists. No pen remains. The decoration on the leather is an ornate Rococo design of leaf shapes, flower shoots, a basket and rope drops. The same design appears on both sides. The spine has a more Renaissance Revival design. The color of the ornamentation is faded, but it still reads as being a colorful contrast to the dark leather and balances out the gilt. Heavy wear and rubbing to the leather along the edges and extremities. Still, though, a handsome case. Bookseller Inventory # 003331

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
