This is a truly delicate French antique book of prayers.
I think the cover is bone, it is a very hard material, it has silver inlay with possible initial on the cover ‘A’ with gilt trimming to page edges and every page decorated with floral design
It was published by J Depelley printing company in Limoges, late 1800’s
There is a small ‘bubble’ to the front cover, see pic and the clasp is missing, a very old,delicate, fragile item indeed. For display only.
Approx: height 12cm, width 9.5cm, depth 3cm
