A fine Victorian silver Aide Memoire, the two silver covers chased and embossed with foliate scroll work, the cover with a raised scene depicting the Crystal Palace. Almost certainly made to commemorate the Great Exhibition of 1851. The red leather and silk lined interior complete with five ivory pages named with days of the week (excluding Sunday), the whole held together with a silver Propelling Pencil (stamped: Mordan & Co).
