[HANGING VALENTINE DECORATION.] Three-tier Wall Hanging with Collie Dog, Kittens and Birds. [c.1920]
Three-part diecut hanging decoration, total height while hanging 37cm approx; collie dog in heart adorned with flowers; kittens with cup and saucers and the words 'With Love'; finally a second flower heart with songbirds; attached with what seems to be the original string, judging from the even toning to the verso attachments; a little fraying to top knot; near-fine.
An unusual wall-hanging Valentine, remarkably preserved with the original attachments. As well as cards, which could be folded and put away, wall-hangings were popular in the early 20th century, as they could be proudly presented on walls as symbols of an adirmirer's affections.
