Vintage Valentines and Post Cards

This post card, dated 1923, has movable parts. You can move the top dove ~ he is attached with a small metal screw/brad type thing which is engraved. The card itself is made of a heavy paper lace which has the look of mother of pearl.

The heart with roses in the center of this post card is satin - so pretty. It lifts up and there is a message inside. Sweet!

These are a few of the vintage valentines and post cards in my collection. I have many more and might show some of them one day soon. Some of the older valentines are very cute and some of them are absolutely beautiful ~ intricate, lacy, and very romantic.

I am so enjoying these--the little fat cherub playing the heart guitar, the doves (boy, you don't see those on modern cards) and all the detail!
