French antique bakelite missal with a working clasp from 1899. It contains a beautiful praying card. This prayer book was published by Dalpayrat et Depelley in Limoges. One corner broken at the back as can be seen on the last photograph. All the pages have light brown marks in line with age. The flyleaf has been neatly removed and the end page is torn. The binding is weak at the first and last pages. The names of previous owners are written at the beginning. This is a beautiful book even with all its little imperfections!
