I can imagine this stylish woman receiving one of these trivets along with her new stove! This Victorian era trade card measures 3 1/2″ x 5″. The back shows damage after being soaked and removed from a card album. Most cards were made of a combination of paper pulp and rag, similar in composition to paper money, and have proven extremely durable.
