Wow your Valentine with a large group of 24 Victorian romantic calling cards. They would look terrific mounted and framed as a group, but they could also be sprinkled about your doll cabinets to add a bit of love there as well.
A card measures approximately 4 x 2 1/4" (10 x 5.5 cm), though each card varies just a bit in size. They all have some version of a chromolithographed scrap image glued to the front. Some have small envelopes with calling cards inside with engraved name upon them. Several have been hole-punched along the edge for adding ribbon... one still has its ribbon intact. Each and every one is wonderful and deserves examination. These cards were likely glued into a scrapbook at one time and most have some glue and paper residue on the back of the card. All show appropriate age issues expected for antique paper ephemera of the time. I date all of them to the late 1800s.
