[MOVEABLE]. Boy in Sun Hat. Printed in U.S.A, [c. 1910]
Two-part moveable Valentine; (19 x 10cm approx.); of a boy in sunhut with 'A Joyful Valentine to You' printed to the lower portion; split pin allowing figure to tilt sideways; a rather vibrant example, creasing along the neck area meaning that the figure's head is a little fragile and has been expertly reinforced; a lovely example of an early 20th century card.
A beautifully coloured Valentine with plenty of texture within the fabric of the clothes, printed in the USA but possibly influenced by European printing techniques and style of traditional dress.
