Ivory/Silver Victorian Dance Card

R2,000.00

This is a late 1800's Victorian Dance Card. Made from Ivory and Silver. Has original Pencil and the silver clasp is still attached and original.  It has a 7 leaf page system. A truly unique and beautiful item. I have only ever seen them on ebay and they have also been broken. Never seen one with a clasp in tact.

A:
The young eligible girls used to go to dances and every gentleman that wanted to dance with her would put their name down on the dance card. She would then dance with the gentleman all night according to that list. There are 7 pages for 7 days of the week and the pecil was to write on the pages so that it could be erased and used again.
