  2. I love these, at first I thought they were old dance cards (that were used at fancy balls). I've never seen bridge tally tags this old, the graphics are stunning.

  3. Hi, Lisa:
    I was delighted with your blog. As you, I have some (??) collections.

    Last two months I worked in a project that results in my blog, about my collection of cups:
    www.sohxicaras.blogspot.com

    I'm sorry because the blog is written in Portuguese, so, I'm enclosing the english translation of the presentation of the blog
    so you can understand me. The blog is named "Only cups".

    Forgive me for my english (may be you will find many mistakes).
    Please, come to visit my blog and left a comment in there. I can read Spanish.

    Presentantion

    This is the place where I'll put everything that I will think is interesting and which contains the theme of my collection of cups. You can find here, besides pictures of pieces from my collection: stamps, phone cards, bookmarks, poems, text (or extracts) from known authors (and others not so well known), information about the production and sale of cups, paintings, etc.. Most of the texts cited here is taken from various internet sites and I always try to put all the credits. If someone does not want his writing to be here just let me know by e-mail that it will be immediately removed.
    Come visit me and comment, please.

  6. Comments above are right. Some of these are not bridge tallies but dance card. When you'd go to a dance, a lady would have her dance card filled out with the names of gentlemen who wanted to dance with her. My grandmother and even my mom had some of these.

  7. These are interesting to look at but only one of them is a bridge tally, the rest are dance cards.
