This beautiful old 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. This was a personal calling card for Etta, and is one of a kind. It is printed on pink linen paper with interwoven lines, quite unusual.
