Fine dove-tailed mahogany slider case (for 3/4 x 4 1/4″ maximum) for ivory or wooden sliders of the Georgian period. As you can see, the case is near perfect with only two scratches/nibbles. The construction is rectangular with a domed lid. External dimensions are 5 1/4 x 4 1/2 x 1 1/4″ and more importantly, the internal measurements are 4 x 3/4 x 4 1/4 ” deep. So, depending upon material (wooden or ivory), there may be room for up to 32 sliders !!! If you have a collection of loose Georgian era sliders, this may be the case for you !!!
