Elaborate Dance Card Sample from the "Fancy Order of Dance", Brooklyn, New York, circa 1880
- Highly unusual layered sample card, with elaborate "Dresden"-style decoration on the front, featuring a butterfly, lace faux flowers, wax leaves, several blue beetle figures, ribbons and a wax hand, all atop gilt lace. The card itself is standard size, nearly 12 by 8.5 cm, and it opens to a blank page on the recto where information about a particular dance, its sponsors and sequences would be furnished, and on the facing verso we are given the name of the business, Fancy Order of Dance, and its Brooklyn address, and nothing more. This all comes in a plain box, which being in an excellent state of preservation, has also done its job preserving the delicate card all this time. The card was also protected by typical tissue paper
