About this Item

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. Bookseller Inventory # 004897

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.
