We feel there is a good chance this is our Hattie, as there are no other Hattie H. Armstrong's that we could find in New England census, and the dates line up perfectly. This beautiful old piece will be sent in a new clean archival rigid sleeve for your collection. This was Hattie's personal calling card, is one of a kind. 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.

Size: 2 x 3.5 inches
