Yesterday I received a fantastic package that contained a large assortment of French Cards from the 1860’s! Each card shows a stunning sample of either Spencerian Script, Typography or Monograms. Such a treasure, I’ve never seen anything like this in my 20 years of dealing with Antiques, so I think it may be quite rare! I’m told that these came from an Estate, in which the owner had owned an Antique Store in Philadelphia that closed down in the 1950’s! Anyway, shown above is an amazing Spencerian, or Pen Flourishing, Frame! I have no idea what the writing says, perhaps some of our French friends will help us out with the translation. The card is so beautiful, but I also loved the frame on it’s own, I think it would be wonderful for Wedding Stationery!! I can’t wait to share more of these, with you guys!
