This Sloniker family calling card was found at the intersection of Michiana, Niles, Berrien County, Michigan, and South Bend, Saint Joseph County, Indiana. This beautiful old Sloniker autographed 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 Flora Mae's own personal card and features a beautifully colored lithographic sailboat, iconic Victorian hand symbol and an American flag.

Size: 2 x 3.5 inches
