This fabulous Victorian Valentine or friendship card has a swirled glass vase of exotic flowers on one side, with the words, "Be Sure That This Comes From A Faithful Heart". On the other side is a bulbous gold and white vase of lovely deep pink flowers, a white Iris with yellow and red markings, and dainty yellow and red Orchids, with the caption "Life Without Friendship Would A Desert Be". A lovely soft red silk fringe forms a very effective frame for the pictures. This hard to find card measures 5 1/2" by 6 3/4" and would be from the late 1800s, the condition is excellent with just a minor crease across, which is hardly noticeable and does not detract from it's beauty. A truly beautiful card.
