1890's Miss Ada A. Dennis Victorian Calling Card, Found in New England
Printed on card: "Miss Ada A. Dennis" is very beautifully and finely printed, calligraphy style, a very fancy card. It was found in Portland, Cumberland County, Maine with a large number of New England, Boston and Massachusetts area calling cards.
Ada may be a nickname for Adaline Dennis, Adalaide Dennis. These Victorian era cards were used to "call" and announce your Victorian "calling" at homes of friends, acquaintances, family members and business contacts. Generally the home had a tray or "Charger," which was a large vessel, often silver, to hold the beautiful cards.
This beautiful old piece will be sent in a new clean archival rigid sleeve for your collection. This was a personal calling card for Ada Dennis, and is one of a kind. It is a very classically beautiful card.
Size: 2 x 3.5 inches
Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
