Item details

This listing is for 2 lovely Victorian calling cards.
Both cards offer roses and hand details in beautiful colors.
The cards are considered in good condition for age. Some slight wear and interior spotting that is age related.

The measures approximately 4" wide by 2 1/8" tall.

I have been collecting calling cards, postcards and other antique ephemera for many moons now and I'm now offering some of my favorites to you.
These would be nice for your collection or for crafts such as cardmaking, scrapbooking or decoupage.

In the day of genteel manners and formal introductions, the exchange of calling cards was a social custom that was essential in developing friendships. The custom of carrying calling or visiting cards began in France in the early 1800's. It quickly spread throughout Europe, and then became vastly popular in the United States, especially the New England area from 1840-1900. Calling cards were carried primarily by the "well-to-do" ladies who made a point to go calling on friends and family on a specified day of the week or month, depending on their location and proximity to neighbors. The gracious reserve of a simple calling card is a gentle reminder of one's presence, and the care poured into a finely crafted card is a welcome courtesy.

A 7.36% tax will be added for Illinois buyers.
I'm happy to ship international if you convo me with details.

FAQs

To the best of my ability I take the most accurate measurements possible. From time to time an error may occur for I'm human. Let me know by convo upon receiving and I will do everything in my power to correct the situation.

Gift wrapping is available upon request for an additional charge. All purchases are given the upmost care in handling and packaging for a safe trip to your home or business.

All of my items are Vintage or Antique and generally are sold "As Is". I try my best to describe the condition of my items and take pictures that not only reflect the good points of the item, but also any of the major flaws it may have. Most of my items are more for display/decorating and/or just for collecting. I do not try to restore any of the items I list. I prefer to leave that to you or other experts who know how to do that. Other than wiping items of dust, I do not attempt to remove rust or patina from any item. Basically, the way I find an item and list it is is the way you will receive it. Personally, I love the "old weathered" look of antique and vintage and hope you do too.
