Poison Valentine With Movable Part Mocking a Vain Man
Very Good. N.d., circa 1850. 23 by 19 cm. The centerpiece of the card is a flower, a peony or carnation, which you can pull back to reveal a beau brummel dandy in top hat and cravat. Underneath is an arch eight line poem mocking such a man, as the norm in vinegar valentines, this one being set apart by the movable piece. Framing the illustration and verse is lacey relief decoration. The Valentine has some spots of soiling and neat fold lines.
