Fantastic 19th century dance card, probably Austrian, comprising an assemblage of mountain climbing gear, suspended from a chatelaine hook by a blue silk cord and topped with a chenille tassel. The front features what I believe is either a snowshoe or a ski carrier, complete with buckled leather straps, under which lies an ice axe crossed with a trekking pole. The card cover is in blue silk with the original pencil; the pages are empty. Very good condition; slight wear to silk cover; one page is torn out; some corrosion to bottom of ice axe. Measures 5 1/8”; 9” with hook.
