c1920 small die-cut embossed fold-over vintage Valentine card featuring different finely-drawn color boy and girl images on the front and back, and a black and white drawing inside. High-quality gold-leaf and brightly colored lithography with wonderful detail, but with no publisher, artist or lithographer marks visible.
Greeting reads: "This Valentine will tell you, What you've already learned, That you're the one sweet Valentine, As far as I'm concerned."
Fold-over die-cut embossed card measures 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" closed and is made of un-bleached shiny paper stock. Addressed and signed in pencil inside on the inside front.
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 one of this age. There are no separations, tears or creases. Some edge and surface wear and blunted points - all visible in the photos. Pencil writing on the inside front. ALL FLAWS ARE VISIBLE IN THE PHOTOS.
