Three Mother-of-Pearl Inlaid Photo Cases & Eleven Leatherette Photo Cases

A Beautiful highly polished wood or tortoise shell case with mother-of-pearl inlaid flowers, fitted for two photos inside with mattes and glass. The hinge has been repaired and is intact, but does separate, otherwise the case is very good. It measures 2 7/8 by 3 1/8 inches.
