This EXQUISITE and LARGER size card is circa late 1880's and because of it's CHARMING CHERUB and COURTESAN MOTIF, would make a FABULOUS DISPLAY in a doll room-------the PERFECT ACCESSORY for your antique POUPEE or BEBE!
The card measures an IMPRESSIVE 11" by 8 1/2", and features a COLORFUL array of EMBOSSED Victorian ephemera, including a very fancy COURTING COUPLE in the center flanked by two SWEET CHERUBS, gorgeous original die cut FLOWERS and BIRDS, and lovely original delicate silver and white DRESDEN LACE trim-------if you love all the decorative Victorian paper embellishments, this one card has IT ALL!
