card holder with mother-of-pearl inlay, etched designs, sterling cartouche
engraved, "M. E. Smith, 10th Feb’y, 1879" and a calling card inside "Dr. W.C.F.
Smith, North Parade, Halifax". There is a small stable old crack in one panel of
the mother-of-pearl but it does not detract from the detailed and intricate work
on this lovely old case which is otherwise in excellent condition. Having
the calling card belonging to the owner’s husband as an added piece of ephemera
is a nice and unusual addition.

STERLING
Prior to the 1860s, sterling silver was expensive
and generally available only to the wealthy. With the discovery of
silver at the Comstock Lode in Ne
vada
(then Western Utah Territory)
in 1859,
sterling became both less expensive and more desirable. Extravagant
accessories and ornaments, so enjoyed by the Victorians, now decorated
the vanity table, dining table and home. Some patterns of sterling
flatware had an implement for almost every food type, with such exotic
pieces as oyster forks, asparagus servers, cold meat forks, grapefruit
spoons, nutmeg spoons and tomato servers.
Victorian ladies owned cut crystal dresser sets with sterling lids,
sterling chatelaines and sterling handled grooming implements. And the
reflection of gas light on sterling created a soft glow that added to
its popularity.
