For your consideration is a darling & vintage Valentine postcard that has written on the front: "O little maiden patriotic, With those glances so despotic, You have rendered quite chaotic, Many a valiant heart." It displays a pretty young character nurse dressed in white with a Red Cross on her hat & she is holding a lovely Valentine. Also! On the other end of the front of the postcard, is a blue & white vertical striped banner with a white top with red hearts on it. There is some writing on the back, however, this postcard was never posted. It looks like the sender was using it as a Valentine. It is marked on the back: Whitney Made, Worcester, Mass. It is a original from the early 1900's. Approx.: 3 1/2"W X 5 1/2"L.
For a vintage postcard that is around 100 years old, it is in very good, vintage & collectible condition. There is light wear overall from age & use, however! Such as: Light yellowing on the back, some lightly scuffed corners & edges & there is a red spot on the front right top corner. All flaws noted are minor & only mentioned for honest accuracy.
