Antique Aesthetic INsect dragonfly frog and grasshopper calling car......
The aesthetic period (1868 to 1901) brought about some of the most unusual pieces .In the late 1800's, Darwin's controversial theories on evolution, as well as new botanical discoveries taking place, created quite an interest in the natural world. Personal adornments and vanity items reflected these new interests with jewelry created in forms of insects and animals.To find this rare leather late 1800's card case in such great condition was a real joy. THis was stored in an old book and it kept it really well preserved. This has grasshoppers, frogs, beetles, flies, moths all in raised relief on the leather. AS you look on the inside you can see these were not impressed into the leather from the underside. THey are made to look like fossils in a technique I an not familiar with. This measures 3 1/8" x 1 1/8" and is in great condition.
