Victorian Calling Cards Visiting Cards 4 Gift Cards 1890s Victoriana Antique Ephemera Teatime Decor
This is a set of 4 original antique Victorian or Edwardian era calling cards or visiting cards, Victorian ephemera.
They were given by ladies and gentlemen to introduce themselves and to leave when visiting a home or enclosed with a gift.
The 3 of the calling cards have elegant professionally printed names and one is in an elegant hand written script hand.
The cards are: Mrs. Sarah McHenry, and I believe it is annotated Bridegroom gift
Miss Mamie G. Robinson
Flossa P. Robinson
Jonathan P. McHenry with an address
They are in very good used, antique condition with a bit of age wear and very mild discoloring and measure approximately 3 inches by 2 inches.
Calling cards are very difficult to find now, and are a window on an elegant and gracious age past.
They can be used in all sorts of ways...to fill your own calling card basket, as a source of ideas for artwork and many other things.
