Pocket Card Holder with Black Mother of Pearl Korean Turtle Ship Design
This unique mother of pearl pocket card holder is ornamented with an intricate mother of pearl design of Korean Turtle Ship. Also known as Geobukseon, the Turtle Ship was the first ironclad warship in the world invented and built by admiral Yi Sun-sin in 1592. Boasting unparalleled firepower and mobility, it was capable of sinking the vast fleets of the Japanese navy in the sea battles between Korea and Japan in 1592-1598. It proved a pivotal instrument for numerous victories against Japanese naval forces, which frustrated Toyotomi Hideyoshi's attempt to conquer Korea.

The embossed pattern on the backside and inside surface, which helps prevent slipping, adds beautiful panache to this metal credit card holder. Read More
