Item Description:

Victorian Valentine features two layers connected by their original paper accordians to make this beautiful and nostalgic piece of sentiment three dimensional.  The delicate paper lace surrounds a central cherub with blond curls tumbling around its head playing a lute within a teardrop shaped opening.  At the top of the paper lace is a die cut of a lovely young girl in a bonnet, raspberry blouse and a pale blue print pinafore with brown bangs and curls with a very detailed, charming face.  At the bottom of the lace is a heart shaped die cut inscribed, "To My Valentine" in gold lettering.  This unusual antique Valentine opens from the left to the right.  We checked the print on the inside and found that it is perfectly seated for the Valentine to open in the reverse manner with the seam of the card on the right.  The inside verse, in sepia print reads, "True Love/Long as there is a sun/to rise,/Roses still will have their glory;/While there are forget-me-nots,/They will have their place in story./In my heart a fairer flower/Holds for aye a greater power."  The verse is surrounded by foliage and fancy scrollwork.  The card is in Very Good condition with a slight bend at the bottom left petal on the purple/lavender flower, and some darkened glue and a stray pencil mark on the reverse.  Otherwise, this lovely, unsigned Victorian Valentine is in remarkable condition for its age.  A nostalgic reminder of simpler and more gentle times, this antique Victorian Valentine will make a remarkably thoughtful gift for someone special to have and hold for another 100 years or so!  (#43698-VictorianValentineCherubLute)
