Digby vintage desk-top card index set - dark red-black leather-effect finish
An original vintage "Digby" small desk-top card index set, comprising a case / box made of thick cardboard with dark red-black leather-effect finish to the exterior, which holds a large number of original off-white blank index cards along with several more blank cards (some white, some blue) of more recent date, together with a full original set of lettered dividers. The inside of the outer lid carries an advertisement for the "Digby" Card Index System, with a picture of a small wooden index card cabinet; the inner lid mentions the "Digby" Trial Outfit - which may be what this set was originally marketed as.
Although, being a genuine original vintage piece, the set shows various signs of age (see condition description below), it would nonetheless make a nicely displayable - and useful - desk accessory for a vintage-style library or study.
