Antique Shark/Ray Skin Case

A lozenge-shaped green shagreen case with oriental brass decoration.

A tactile and aesthetic piece that could still be used for small glasses or would look amazing in a cabinet of curiosities.

The shagreen is in excellent vintage condition with very minimal wear and tear. The brass work has a few losses here and there but its forgiven when looking at it as a whole. A good honest well-loved piece.

Measuring 17cm long x 7cm wide x cm deep.


  • H: 17cm (6.69in)
  • W: 7cm (2.76in)
