The calling or visiting card was once an essential instrument of social etiquette among the higher classes. From the 17th to the 19th century, a gentleman or lady simply wasn't received during the Georgian, Regency, and Victorian eras unless they first conveyed their card, typically via servant to servant. The business card, introduced first as a trade card in 17th century London, supplanted its printed forbearer in the wake of the Industrial Revolution, remaining a ubiquitous cultural staple even this far into the Digital Revolution. Whatever cards you might collect or dispense now, tomorrow, and well into the future, our lined chrome/veg retan Benjamin Leather Card Wallet will carry them with ageless distinction. Or this simple, handsome piece works well as a compact front pocket wallet, boasting a vintage detail cribbed from a 1920s model: a nifty token pocket for tiny treasures.
