Beautiful Antique Baby Christening Gift, a rare find. Presented in a box, cards like this were given at a Christening or Birth gift in the early 1900's to 1920's. Truly spectacular, this has been loved and so well kept all these years by a collector.

Beautifully hand made, cards like this were made in European countries, this is from Poland. A Red, White and Blue striped background is bordered with Gold Dresden Trim, and White French Silk Ribbon Loops at each corner. In the center, a Wax Angel. The back opens envelope style, godparents or other family member or close friend generally added a letter or note {often there was a slip of paper inside, this one does not have one} and a monetary gift.

The Box has plenty of wear and damage, but it has done its job of keeping the treasure inside dirt and wear free. There is discoloration of the paper of the envelope on the back as well, to be expected after decades. But the front is in wonderfully good condition.

Measures 6~3/4" x 5~1/8" {box}, Card measures 6" x 4~1/2". A thrilling find for those of you who collect Postcards, Ephemera and Children's Items.
