Charles X dance card in mother of pearl and ormolu, embellished with flowers and flowery interlacing. It is engraved with “Souvenir” and decorated with delicate branches and an enamel flower, a typical motif of Palais-Royal objects. These mother-of-pearl plates are set in a gilded bronze frame decorated with floral motifs, stylized foliage and palmetto angles. A pencil allows to close this dance card. The mother-of-pearl dance card are characteristic objects of the early 19th century.
