SIZE DANCE CARD/AIDE MEMOIRE
This is a really
useful display item, and at a really good price for a
Victorian doll size Dance Card/Aide Memoire. I
have never found one before to offer to my collectors at
such a low price - so do contact me quickly if you would
like to add it to your collection. These little
items were very popular in Victorian times and were used
as little notebooks, or for ladies to take to a dance to
mark in with whom she had agreed to share a particular
dance. The detail was written in pencil, and the
writing could then be rubbed out and the page used time
and time again. There is some writing on a couple
of the pages - difficult to read, I will leave that to
the purchaser to decipher! - this is part of the history
of this little item and is something I would not remove.
There are the two covers and four additional pages.
It is rectangular when closed and opens out into a fan
shape. It is in lovely condition, with no damage
to any of the leaves.
