This is a set of 10 original antique Victorian era calling cards or visiting cards ephemera. 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.

 They 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.

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, and especially fun to incorporate into tea table decor.
