Elaborate Dance Card Sample from the "Fancy Order of Dance", Brooklyn, New York, circa 1880
1 Elaborate Dance Card Sample from the "Fancy Order of Dance", Brooklyn, New York, circa 1880
NA Fine 
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

2 [Dance Card] Bürgerball des VIII Gemeinde-Bezirkes Josefstadt. Sale Zum Grunen Thor, 11 Februar 1885.
Wien (Vienna) Aug. Klein 1885 Near Fine 
A most unusual dance card from the capital of the waltz during its heyday! On the front is mounted a miniature leaf a day calendar, this calendar bound with a colored pattern satin. The calendar begins on February 11, the day of the particular ball, and continues until the end of the year. This calendar is mounted onto a stiff leather card base, through which a string with the requisite tassel and brass hook are attached. On the other side of the leather piece is the dance card proper, held closed by a thin pencil, and with a cover of silk. One opens the dance card to find a title page, followed by blanks onto which the danseuse would have entered her dance commitments for the evening. This particular card has never been used, and so the pencil, the calendar, the dance card itself, is in wonderful shape, with subtraction from pristine solely the inevitable toll from the passage of time. Measures, at tallest, 70 mm, and about 44 mm wide.
