Description

A lovely Edwardian Aide Memoire/Diary in a chestnut color leather with a sterling silver monogram MB. Inside a stylish silver retractable pencil with engine turned decoration. The pencil can be extended with additional 2,5cm (2,8") by pulling the top.

Inside we have a silk lining with space for cards, 3 stamp sections and additional section probably for paper notes.

The Diary part is an ivory color celluloid card which is removable, and would have been written on in pencil. There is a side piece with a section for a tiny pencil.

With still very clear gold lettering, Monday to Saturday, written in French. No Sunday, as this would have been a day of rest.

Measurements:
dimensions of the folded case - 12cm (4,72") by 7,5cm (2,95")
monogram measures approximately 2cm (0,78") by 2,3cm (0,90")
pencil's length 9cm (3,54"), when extended 10,5cm (4,13")

In good condition with a little wear commensurate with age. Leather in good condition with one small stain (see pictures). Silk lining in a very good condition.

The item is marked on the monogram with French hallmark for silver. The pencil is marked on the bail for the silver content with mark 800.

Please let us know if you would like additional photos prior to purchase.
