Victorian Visiting Cards Calling Cards Assorted Set of 10 Flowers Mottoes Ephemera Teatime Decor
An antique set of 10 original Victorian era calling cards or visiting cards. They were given by ladies to introduce themselves and to leave when visiting a home. They were also used as enclosures with gifts.
Every fashionable lady had their own, and many used the Language Of Flowers to leave a message. They have various type faces, decorations and styles. We acquired these with a large lot of Victoria ephemera, and were told they had originally been in a scrapbook or visitor's album but had been removed years ago.
The calling cards or visiting cards are in very good used, antique condition with a bit of wear and marks of having mounted on the back. Calling cards are very difficult to find now, and are a window on an elegant and gracious age past.
