1940's E. Rosen Candy Company lollipop-holder vintage Valentine Day card, has two fold out rings in the center for holding the lollipop stick in place on the front of the card and another half moon fold-in whole in which the candy pop itself rests. (Lollipop costs extra - if you really HAVE to have one!!). Image is that of a small boy shooting off a big cannon, with a big red heart in the background.
Greeting reads: "POP! POP!..... will go this gun of mine as long as you're My VALENTINE."
Printed on the lower margin is "New Weight 4 Grams, E. Rosen Company Providence, R.I.", and a list of ingredients. E. Rosen Company (also known as "School House Candy"), was a well-known New England candy manufacturer for almost 90 years, with two plants in Rhode Island and two more in Massachusetts, until its candy business was purchased by the Sherwood Corporation in 1998.
Card measures 3-1/4" x 3-1/2" and is made of a heavy un-bleached rag cardboard stock, common to the 1930s and 1940s.
PHOTO NOTE: The muted grainy nature of the images in the gallery view is a photo distortion. The close-up (magnified) images are more accurate than the gallery views, but the vivid colors appear somewhat muted. The scanning process tends to exaggerate the dots from the lithographic process, creases and small flaws, which are usually much less noticeable when viewed in person.
CONDITION NOTE: The condition of this valentine is excellent for a card of this age. There are no separations or tears. There are light creases across the base of the fold-outs and diagonally across the upper left corner. There is also album remnants, smudged ink and illegible writing on the back.
