Product Description

WONDERFUL VINTAGE MECHANICAL PAPER, STAND UP VALENTINE'S DAY CARD. What a great old Valentine's Day decoration. Rich, vibrant coloration. Beautiful detailing to the full color lithography printed, mechanical card. Easel at the back of the card allows it to stand. Move the little lever on the side, and the little boy moves his hammer up and down, eyes move. 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 theaters, the wars ending and beginning, the faster paced world rushing around everyone. The card is in good vintage condition, as shown in the photo. 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 6 3/4" 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!!!!!
