The shaped sides of this piece are embellished with plain scrolling borders.
This card case is fitted with a hinged cover ornamented with further scroll and foliate designs on a matt background.
The top of the cover bears a ‘lozenge mark’ which certifies the patent of this piece on 27th November 1850 with the UK Patent Office.
