Fine Victorian calling card case with MOP case with Abalone surrounding a finely detailed raised panel inset hand painted scene of two ladies in English Victorian dress. One in red and blue dress holding what appears to be a religious frame, other lady in pink/ gold and white silk dress with brooch pin holding a book or bible, with a painting above them of a gentleman or possibly Jesus hard to tell with original velvet cloth liner. Condition over all very good to excellent, the clasp and hinge are in perfect working order. There is very minor wear almost un-noticeable. H. 3 3/4'' W. 2 3/4'' D. 3/16th. Sorry could not get better close-ups photo, the painting detail is very very good though.
