Vintage Poker Card/Chip Set Circa 1900

I found inside a very old attaché case a poker card/poker chip set circa 1900. It is self-contained in a small carrying case. The cards are very early Bicycle cards and the chips are miniature and fit into a chip holder that slides into a slot below the cards. As far as I can tell it is one-of-a-kind in that I cannot find anything like it anywhere on the Web.

It is really slick. I can picture an old riverboat gambler carrying this or possibly a soldier in WWI.

Anyone ever seen one of these or know of anyone who might have one? I'd like to know what its worth. It is a real piece of poker history
