    These are all items in the last pages of a photo album I have from 1884 that I listed previously. So you may want to take a look at it as well in my collection on here.

    With the help received below I found out these are...drum roll please....Victorian Calling Cards!!! : )

      I know that in my Grandparents belongings were literally hundreds of these cards. It must have been a "social" exchange amongst friends. Here is a site that may help...

      Victorian calling cards. They are really pretty! A few of them look like cards that came with flowers or other gifts, like the one advertising fine liquors. If the calling cards are easily removed from the book take them out and hold them up to the light, some have hidden pictures only visible when held to light. They are more rare than just the regular calling cards.

      Thank you so much Savoychina1 and tikiray for the feedback and information! Savoychina1 thank you for liking this item as well. It is awesome that you both updated me with what y0u did. Are the calling cards collectable or any of the other items? The information both of you provided me is priceless and I am very grateful for it. Have a blessed day!
