A pair of elegant dance cards was produced for dances on January 16, 1892, and February 4, 1893, in Zagreb, Croatia, one of the cards being printed in Croatian and the other in German language, as at the time Zagreb was a part of Austro-Hungary. 

The cards include lists of popular and traditional dances such as the Waltz, Square Dance, Kolo, and Mazurka. Some names of the dances are accompanied by contemporary notes with names of dancing partners.  

The dance cards were small cards ladies received at the balls to note the name of dancing partners for certain numbers. They developed in the 18th century are reached their peak of popularity in the 19th century.  

The printer Busina from Zagreb was mostly known as a postcard producer.
