A gorgeous antique French carnet de bal, dating to the turn of the 20th century.

The decoration is typical Art Nouveau, with the stylised mistletoe, or 'Gui' on the front, and floral patterns to the back.

The cover is held closed by a small original pencil, which when removed allows the lid to flip open and reveal the original note papers inside.

The first paper is silver leafed, and then each other sheet has writing fro the original owner. I can date this booklet to 1907 as the date '1er Janvier 1907' is written on the first page, along with the words '16 ans!! I am guessing this item was a 16th birthday gift.

You will be able to browse each page and find out what the original owner was writing about.

The booklet is in excellent condition. It was once silver plated, but al the plating has worn or has been polished away and it is now a beautiful warm brass colour. All of the original papers are intact, as is the pencil (needs sharpening!).

The booklet measures 2 x 1.25 inches.
