Red Leather Case w/Clasp, Name Card Holder #178-31

Status: Available Price: $225.00
This is a very unusual and rare accessory for a doll including the early French fashion dolls. It is a red leather case that has a silver colored clasp and the front portion is covered with blue silk with Dresden paper trim and an early lithographed young couple. When it is open, there 4 separate "pages" that hold name cards. The two inside covers have colorful litho pictures of ladies and the back also has a lovely fruit design. There are 5 name cards listing a lady's name and address: Miss Agnes Ellis, 32 South Broadway, Lawrence, Mass. The last photo shows one of the name cards separately from the case so that it can be well seen. The inside pages are hard and fabric covered with a gold numbered leather band across to hold the name cards. When closed, the size is 2 1/4" x 1 5/8". This is a very lovely doll's accessory and extremely well made and difficult to find. Dates from c. 1880 or possibly even earlier. The pictures are nice and bright.
