Hello my name is***** am a certified appraiser and would be happy to help you. Victorian calling cards were either simple cards or could be elaborate and detailed. They were very important and the first calling visit would last only 15 minutes. The link below gives a brief history and etiquette to using them.

With each of the three frames you have 8-10 cards in each. The realistic/fair value on a frame of these cards would be 65.00-75.00 per frame It depends on the card and how detailed they are, what they say and the art on them. Good sites to sell these would be rubylane.com or etsy.com as both sites cater to finer items that are hard to find and many collect the Victorian items for decoration.
