Antique Valentine Lover's Stationery is a very rare discriminating collector piece dating Ca. 1870 worthy of framing. This incredible and early Valentine relic is a very scarce example of the hand-made stationery meant to contain the heartfelt communication of lovers in a time without cell phones. :) This hand embellished example features a German diecut cherub standing on a double metallic heart pierced by an arrow attached by a twisted gold metallic cord to a die-cut dove. The cherub on the hearts is raised by a paper accordian. The stationery features a lovely border of embossed scrollwork with a pale green and metallic gold decoration and a decorative oval medallion from which the cherub seems to be flying being pulled by the dove. This stationery is a foldover with a crease at the left side. All of the pages are oh-so-faintly lined in very light green. This rare and unique piece of Valentine history is in unused condition. There is only a single defect to the piece and that is that the upper wing of the diecut bird is missing. Considering the age of this piece, its rarity as well as the pristine, unused condition overall, we consider this very wonderful piece to be in Excellent Condition. A very rare example of Lover's Stationery from the 19th Century! Price includes domestic UPS Ground shipping.
