Victorian/Edwardian calling cards: my new favorite way to squander money. Here are the very first 15 of my brand new collection:
this would actually be a great way to get ideas for business cards (sorry to take the romance out). But I certainly love Mary Joyce' calling card!
they really are delightful. i think the 2nd one is my favorite
those are so pretty!
These are all so marvelous! Beautiful collection!
These are beautiful!http://sweetharvestmoon.blogspot.com
Wow, they are amazing.
Wow! Thanks so much for posting these.
Aaaah the one with the roses is incredible! Just imagining the gentleman (Isaac!) who might have carried those is blowing my mind...
So beautiful - I love the roundish one and the one with cut-out corners!
after looking at all of these gorgeous things... i have decided to make my own calling cards.
I am utterly smitten. You know I always noticed in a book or film when people would leave their calling card. Why did I never think to look for them in real life? These are beautiful. My business cards don't have my name on them because I like the choice of sharing my name when I give out my card. I think I need to make cards that are solely for personal reasons, something like these. I think this is a brilliant way to squander you money :) thanks for posting these.
I love these!
they are so lovely!i found you via tallulah!:D
Ohh, how I love these! I have about a dozen pretty Victorian calling cards I found in out attic, they're just the sweetest. I sort of want to revive the tradition, but people would probably think I was crazy ;-)
The fourth one is my favourite! The shape is absolute perfection.xwww.lostinthehaze.com
They are so beautiful!
These are so beautiful!!From Carys of La Ville Inconnue
Adorable. I love the way hands were depicted back then... as if no one had knuckles or wrist bones!
I have so many of these! My grandparents just moved and my grandmother had to get rid of boxes of these (she used to be an antique paper dealer), and I was thinking of selling them on Etsy. Glad to see there's a market! I thought maybe I was the only one,
So beautiful.. Love them all :)http://leavingmynoteshere.blogspot.com/
Paris Abbott's card is my absolute favorite, hands down!
Wow, these are superb. Love the typography and the gorgeous flowers. X
So beautiful, I would love to design some for myself!
so beautiful. i have a small collection of these and adore them.
Stunning- they really don't make them like that anymore.....
Very nice,thanks.rental mobil elf
These are really pretty. I love things like this, the second card is definitely my favourite one. xxx
You're not squandering your money- this is a genuine investment in fantastic-ness!
Very lovely collection!! The plain black print one with the elaborate handwriting is my favorite!
i LOVE the script one.. it's so fancy but slightly scrappy.i want calling cards now!
This would definitely give any blogger some unique business card appeal. Of course, maybe the modern males wouldn't be as into them, but they're beautiful nonetheless! Awesome.-Iddie Doll
