This is an absolutely wonderful Sterling Silver Card Case. The clear hallmarks date it to Birmingham 1859, and it is in perfect condition! The front has a very elegant inscription of the monogram "LMP. The image of Queen Victoria's head stamped on the lid is very important, as it denotes the early age of the piece. It is very rare to find that stamp, especially on such a well-preserved item. In the past, men and women would use these cases to carry the calling cards that they would use when visiting acquaintances. Recently, this custom has made a comeback, and they are used for business cards, as well as credit cards! Cases like these are perfect for holding two or three credit or business cards, plus a couple of $20 bills for a business lunch, or a night out.
