A truly superb, antique, solid silver card case.  The case is rectangular and in a wonderful envelope form.  The splendid, exceptionally crisp engraving, to both the front and the back of the case depicts lovely swirling patterns. On the back is a nicely shaped empty cartouche.   The lid is hinged and pulls open easily,  to reveal a pale golden gilt interior. The lid closes with a small button that fastens it securely.   Clear hallmarks are visible on the inside of the case for the Birmingham Assay Office with a date mark for 1916  and Lion Passant indicating the finest sterling silver.  The maker's marks for the renowned silversmith Adie & Lovekin Ltd are also clearly visible. Partial marks are also visible on the underneath of the lid. 

This is a most impressive item. Beautifully crafted, very tactile, and in super antique collector's condition. A superb and unusual case.
