About this Item

Extraordinary dance card for a Belle Epoque ball and possibly benefit. The card proper is held atop a staff, like a placard that might be held high in a parade. The tin and brass object is 19 cm high, and the backing at the top to which is attached the booklet proper is 6.5 by 6 cm, not counting the ornamental pediment. The booklet is 4 by 5.5 oblong, and it opens from the top. Besides the list of dances for the evening, the booklet gives credit to the music's composers, and it also contains a roster of the club's officials. The dance was in honor of Archduke Carl Ludwig. Also surviving is the original pencil, which acts as a clasp holding the booklet closed. The pencil has splintered a bit at the tip. Otherwise, the object is in wonderful shape, with even the original string and tassel none the worse for wear. Bookseller Inventory # 003276

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
