A wonderful example of an art nouveau aide memoire which a lady of the period would have carried with her. A repousse decoration of intertwining poppy-heads and leaves: the pattern is continued on the reverse around an un-engraved cartouche. The piece has the original propelling pencil with the tiniest end of original lead still present. The pencil is topped with a piece of turquoise and fits snugly into the side clasp holding the top and bottom of the memoire closed. The hinge is secure and the whole piece is in wonderful original condition. A special piece for a collectors cabinet or simply for someone who loves beautiful things.
