Vintage 1920s flat cut-out children's comic Valentine card with vivid lithography and vibrant colors. Features a caricature of an African American little girl with bright red lips. Valentine greeting written in a dialect commonly portrayed in the 1920s as Southern African American. Great example of the "cute" type of mildly racist comic Black Americana common for the time.

Marked "To Mother" in pencil on the back. N o lithographer or artist identified. Card measures 5" high by x 4" wide.

PHOTO NOTE: Small defects are exaggerated by the scanning process, and many are barely noticeable when viewed in person. The photos also distort the clarity of the images and sometimes the intensity of the colors. The muted "grainy" look is a distortion. The colors are often more vivid and the clarity greater when viewed in person.

CONDITION NOTE: LOOK CAREFULLY AT THE ATTACHED PHOTOS. Condition is accurately shown. Condition is excellent - near mint. Borders and back are tan - probably from age discoloration, but could also be the color of the card stock originally used. Card has no bends, creases or tears. ALL DEFECTS ARE VISIBLE IN THE PHOTO.
