All these items were in one box lot along with several sets of sterling silver candle holders, a sterling silver tea strainer,( which I kept) and lots of broken sterling silver pieces that I have since scrapped for $120.00. I paid $15.00 for the lot!This is my favorite items from the lot. This is a sterling silver ladies calling card case. I love all the filligree work on the case and the intials are ALS. They are for Alice Lee Shenk. How do I know that? Because this was inside the case.
Her actual calling card! I was so excited when I saw that card. I hadn't opened the calling card case or the purse before I bought them!
Inside the old leather purse was this old coin purse and
This tiny sterling silver thimble! It is a child sized thimble and it is also engraved with ALS. Also inside the purse was this:
A teeny tiny little silver spoon! I have no idea what such a small spoon would be used for. The lovely lavendar and white hanky belonged to my grandmother.
