Utilisé aux XVIIIe et XIXe siècles, le carnet de bal est un accessoire féminin destiné à inscrire le nom des cavaliers et la danse qui leur est réservée. Associé au porte-monnaie, il constitue un cadeau idéale d’une mère à sa fille en âge d’aller au bal.

Dance cards, on which the names of dance partners and the dances reserved for them were written, were a women’s accessory used in the 18th and 19th centuries. Combined with a purse, they were a perfect gift from a mother to a daughter who was old enough to attend a dance.
