An Ormolu Calling Card Holder
This piece is placed on a table in the main
entrance for guests to put their calling cards on for the lady of the house!
A great Victorian custom for the lady of the house to have information about
her guests! As you can see from the photos, a figurine is holding up a large
shell shape dish where calling cards will be placed. The attractive base has
raised designs and motifs that enhances the figurine! A great accessory for
your Victorian house!
