Item Description:

Unsigned Victorian Valentine features three layers on accordians for a three-dimensional effect with a central medallion of Cupid with his bow and arrow. The background is an ornate, embossed design with horns and mandolins tied with blue bows on each corner. Flourishing scrollwork and aqua, blue and gold predominate. The second layer features vibrant pink dogwood blossoms and foliage on a buttery eyllow ground rimmed with scalloped blue edges. The top layer features very delicate paper lace in gold and green overlaid with creamy cut outs of paper lace in the form of a butterfly and foliage. Very intricate work! The inside verse amid a scebe if a bridge, across a pond, trees and dogwood says, "What shall love's/keepsake be./A rose - a ring;/Token that's fair to see,/Or song to sing?/Nay none of these love mine,/I'd send to you - /Take from me Valentine,/My heart so true." In Very Good Condition, there is some crinkling along the right side when opened and bends at the corners that have been straightened over the years. The reverse is unsigned and carries only some wear and a gold letter "G". Beautiful colors, Cupid with his bow and musical instruments make this one special!
