Calling Card, circa 1880 – 1899. Gold-flowered background not part of card.
White calling card with decorative raised border for Wilhelmine S. M. Gathje. (The gold-patterned background was just for scanning purposes.) This card was beautifully done. Check out the surprise under the S! And according to online birth and death information Miss Gathje was born in 1864 and died in Nebraska in 1899, so this card could be from about 1880 – 1899.
