VICTORIAN aide memoir, pencil in it's original presentation box : $498.00

VICTORIAN aide memoir necessaire with pencil in it's original presentation box marked "Carassale Hermanos, Montevideo-Paris".

The notebook is 4" by 2-5/8"; the box 5-1/3" by 4" by 1-1/2".

The applied sterling etched design on the front is tacked with minute nails, 2 of which are missing, and the initials "HIM" are on the shield.

The inside of the box is lined with shirred aqua fabric, as is the inside packet of the book, circa 1880s.

The cover is celluloid and the little pencil is bone.

This is all in excellent condition with no flaws to note at all, amazing for a piece over 130 years old. The page inside has a bit of old fashioned calligraphy including the date 1888. Sold by Carassale Hermanos, Montevideo, Uruguay; the firm is now located in Argentina and still exists.
