Here is a wonderful antique one of a kind treasure made by hand and intended to relay the message of Love! Perfect for the valentine or other ephemera collector, this was made back in the Victorian era. It is a rich reddish-orange velvet covered keepsake designed like a wallpocket. There are two velvet covered hearts connected with wide grossgrain ribbon. When opened, one could keep little calling cards or other missives of love inside. This is all handsewn and there is even a crocheted piece that states "I Love You" going across the larger heart. Attached to the top is more ribbon with a 3" early plastic ring with which to hang it. Overall size is about 6 1/2" x 6". Condition is very good. Rare folk art love token!
