POCHETTE - EMBOSSED SILVER

Approx. 11" front scroll to tip x 1.75" at widest point. Excellent condition with clear detail.
A German-silver, baroque-shaped pochette, with an opening between the back and the bottom of the ribs, most likely made in Holland in the 19th-century with lovely embossed decorations on the entire body, fingerboard and tail piece and with a plain scroll. The decorations on the front and back show various scenes and the rest is decorated with floral motifs.
This highly unusual item was most likely used as a holder for a dance card or a fan. We have never seen another like it.
