Victorian Calling Card Holder
Victorian Calling Card Holder

In the genteel days before texts and emails elegant ladies would carry calling cards as a way of introduction and to develop friendships. The custom of carrying calling cards begin in France in the early 1800's and was especially popular in the New York Area from 1840-1900. The purpose of the calling card was just a gentle reminder of your presence and was placed into a artisan tray or holder in the entrance of the home to whom you were calling upon.

This piece works great on a nightstand holding your jewelry from the day, or your digital calling card, your cell.
