I can just hear Downton Abbey's Carson: 'Good Afternoon, Madam...May I tell the Lady of the House whom is calling?'

At the turn of the 19th Century, whether the Lady of the House was receiving callers or not, one could not make their social rounds without a superb Calling Card to present upon their arrival.

Like everything else, the Victorians (and Edwardians) had strict rules of etiquette governing visits, Calling Cards included.

Your Personal card would be from the finest stationer and printed beautifully, or better yet-Engraved.
Upon arrival, you would present your card to the Butler and place it on a small silver tray kept by the front door for just such occasion. Ever conscious of class distinctions, you would never be so vulgar as to actually hand it to a servant!
Privacy was of utmost importance and with such a calling card, 'Carson' could quite discretely announce your arrival without saying a word. It was then up to the Master or Lady of the House to refuse or grant your audience, and it was to their discretion whether to name you publicly to whomever else was present.

Created in 1:12 Scale, these Victorian Calling Cards on a Butler's Tray would look Period Perfect in your Miniature Victorian House or Roombox. You could even place it in your Butler's hand!

The Silver Butler's Tray has a delicate beaded edging and comes with two lovely photo quality Victorian Calling Cards affixed to the tray.
I include a third detached Calling Card for your own pleasure of placement.

Choose from Oval or Round.

Oval Measures: 5/8" x 7/16"
(1.6cm x 1.1cm)

Round Measures: 1/2" Diameter
(1.2cm)
