Extraordinary English sterling silver Art Nouveau card case. A distinct Alphonse- Mucha-influence maiden is in high relief upon its front. The profile, with cascading hair and elaborate headband, is reminiscent of Mucha's depictions of Sarah Bernhardt. Floral and scrolling patterns in relief further enhance the lovely case, which accommodates a present-day, business-card size. Hallmarks: Clifford & Norris, Birmingham 1902. 2 3/4" W., 3 7/8" H.
