Product Description

WONDERFUL VINTAGE STAND UP, PAPER VALENTINE'S DAY CARD. What a great old Valentine's Day decoration. Rich, vibrant coloration. Beautiful detailing to the full color lithography printed, stand up card. Little easel in the back, folds out for the card to stand. Move the "MY LOVE" heart, and the fortune comes out of the machine. Mechanical Valentine's Day cards became popular in the late 1920's, into the 1930's. The old time fold out type cards lost popularity after motion pictures came to the theatres, the wars ending and beginning, the faster paced world rushing around everyone. The card is in good vintage condition, as shown in the photo. A little tape on the back near the motion areas for support. Please note that there may be a tiny crease, a fold, an imperfection to the paper.....not in bad condition considering the age, 70+ years old!! It stands about 7 1/8" tall. Unmarked, most likely Germany or U.S.A. For more information and history on vintage Christmas items, visit The Golden Glow of Christmas Past web site. What a great addition for your Valentine's Day Holiday collection!!!!!
