Antique Silver Card Cases

Like many antique collectables, card cases are a symbol of a bygone era and an old way of doing things. Used by the English middle classes for around a century from the 1820s onwards, they were used to house calling cards, which were used out of etiquette to let residents know that somebody had tried to make a social call while they were out. Some of the best examples of card cases are those made from solid silver and chased or engraved with famous buildings or landscape scenes. It is these so-called ‘Castle Top’ cases that Steppes Hill Farm Antiques specializes in. These antique silver card cases have become incredibly collectible and increasingly rare today. Our antique silver card cases make great gifts, keepsakes or additions to an existing antique collection, and we are glad to advise on any of our antique silver card cases for sale.
