In saying  ‘small cases’  ,  I refer to pretty much all small cases , from lady’s compacts & lipstick cases to cigarette cases , card cases  &  basically any such case for any use at all ………….. you name  ~  it was made in fine enamel work ,  as long as it was a  ‘small case or box’.

This Mappin & Webb Guilloche Enamel Jade & Marcasite Case ,  dating to 1933 from Birmingham  is nothing short of outstanding!

Mappin & Webb were both makers & retailers of ultra fine quality English boxes & many forms of what are now referred to as decorative art’s.
On the same or similar page to Asprey’s of London ,  Tiffany’s of New York {although the latter did not made items yet acted as suppliers to the rich & famous & infamous} with the only difference between this piece and those made by Mappin & Webb for Aspreys &/Or Tiffany is that those examples will bare the retailers name ,  as well as Mappins of course.
Meaning ,  no difference what so ever in quality!

Someone hard to buy for ??
This stunning piece can be used for ‘calling cards’ / business cards  Or any smallish items that need to be kept together safely & of course  ~  stylishly ,  yet I see this piece as a table snuff box ………….. to impress even the most discerning visitor!!
