EASTLAKE ANGLO-JAPANESE VICTORIAN 1882 ROCKFORD SILVER P. CO. ANTIQUE ORNATE BIRD CALLING CARD

Calling cards were an important part of Victorian social life, especially among the middle and well-to-do upper class, these were presented when the servant answered the door, if the person was not home, the servant would place this in a small tray, as is the EASTLAKE JAPANESE VICTORIAN ROCKFORD SILVER P. CO. 5 ¼”in height 5 ¾”x 5 ½” top, offer for your consideration this time, an antique estate piece in a very good to an excellent condition, stamped -ROCKFORD SILVER P. CO. QUADRUPLE 10 57-

The significance of a card condition was very different back then, if it was left intact, it meant it had been delivered by a servant; if bent or torn on the top right corner, it signified congratulations, on the top left, a social call. on the bottom left, goodbye, a calling card bent at the bottom right acted as a Victorian-era sympathy card. The meaning was also different, a black border on the card meant the caller was in mourning, popular symbols, such as birds, flowers and hands indicated sentiments, such as friendship and peaceful intentions.
