A fantastic antique, late Victorian era combination tobacco box and card case.

This is a very unusual piece, c1890's, it is made from celluloid faux tortoiseshell with silver plated brass fixtures.

It has a fancy clip to close and inside is an interesting lyre shaped spring clip to hold cards.

A nice interesting piece.

Good used condition overall, there are a lot of nicks, dark pitting and scratches to the celluloid along with some wear around the frame area, it is very thin celluloid, there is wear to the silver plate showing through the golden brass tones
