In the Victorian era, ladies carried a dance card to balls and dances, to which gentlemen would sign their names to request a dance. This rare dance card charm is made of sterling silver with a gold wash. It features a seaside scene, with a raised and textured lighthouse on a cliff, and a hand-engraved ocean, seagulls and sailboat in the distance. The front slides to reveal 3 dance cards, one with the name "Arthur" still etched in pencil. Paired with one of our vintage gold fill chains, this statement-making piece will make you the life of the party, and is perfect for sending secret messages to your loved one.
