Started in France in the early 1800's the custom of carrying {and leaving} calling cards was a social custom that became highly popular all through Europe and the United States.  Used by higher society, ladies and gentlemen would leave a card when calling on their friends on a specified day of the week when the host or hostess would be "at home." 

This Victorian Calling Card is a special one for your collection. A white die cut lady's shoe decorated with a die cut embossed scrap featuring an elegant small nosegay of red roses. Part of the name is hidden by the scrap. So delightful! A rare collectable addition to your paper ephemera collection. Measures  4" x 1-1/4".
