Dated to 1897, this antique calling card case from the Henry Charles Freeman Limited Company has a fanciful design and is decorated throughout with scrolling vine details; a portrait of a horse peeking out from a small vignette on the case’s front. This case was traditionally used to store calling cards (a practice common in 18th century Europe) and was meant to be carried in the waistcoat pocket of a gentleman’s jacket. Stamped with a maker’s mark under the hinged lid, this card case offers a delightful piece of bygone décor to be added to the home or sprawling collection.
This calling card case is amongst hundreds of pieces of collectible décor that are available at our location in Grandview! Come in today and see the full collection.
