[3D VALENTINE]. Cherubs and Flower Cart. Made in Germany, [c.1900].
Two-tier printed Valentine; (11 x 12cm approx.); with cherubs pulling cart filled with hearts and decorated in blue flowers; with backdrop of roses, lillies and violets; with 'To my Valentine' printed to front; a lovely bright card, the very top with horizontal crease and a little delicate; else near-fine.
The flowers present in this Valentine hide coded messages; roses, evidently, are flowers of love, however the blue violets also indicate faithfullness, while the white lillies picturd in the background are a strongly Christian symbol, symbolising purity.
