Angels with fringe, part 1

I thought that this had disappeared. This is one card of two glued in such a way that a silken fringe is on all four sides. The typography is probably late nineteenth century, although it could be after 1900 and before the Great War. I don't know whether this chromolithographed item was a Holy Card or just a Bible bookmark. This is the side that's the worse for wear. I treated most of my stuff very well, but accidents do happen. At least it's not mildewed or faded.
