Truly exquisite antique French notebook, c. late 19th/early20th century
Magnificent embossed classic 18th century design on the back with the trademark "Royal Déposé". The front, also embossed in fine detail, depicts grains of wheat and the design is also signed "Déposé" (Patented). Use the zoom feature to look closely at the superb detail on both the front and back. Remarkably, the notebook is intact with its original pencil and paper! You won't find better!
A dainty elegant notebook like this was made to be worn on a chatelaine's waist chain. The tiny slim pencil slids out and the lid pops open for quick and easy note taking. Chatelaine notebooks are sometimes called a 'carnet de bal' or dance card.
Dimensions: 2 inches long x 1 3/8 inches wide x 1/8th inch thick.
What makes this tiny piece exceptional is that it still has its original paper pad and pencil.
This is a truly rare little treasure in beautiful condition filled of the romance and elegance of 'La Belle Epoque" in France.
