This beautiful old Kilian family piece will be sent in a new clean archival rigid sleeve for your collection. 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.

The card was found in the Hudson Valley area, in Millbrook, Dutchess County north of NYC by a few hours. Alternative spelling of the Kilian surname is Killian and Kilien, Killien. This was Eliza's own personal card and is a beautiful old piece.
