[MOVEABLE]. "My Love for You Sees No Danger on it's Path" Germany, [c.1930].
A colourful moveable Valentine; (18.5 x 15cm approx.); showing a lighthouse and two figures aboard a sailing boat at sea; with two-part mechanism allowing the ship to move up and down and the female figure to tilt backwards and forwards; the words 'My Sweetheart' printed to the sails; a charming scene, some light creases, with previous ownership name in pencil to rear,along with previous tape residue and browning to verso; one small portion of loss to lower RH corner, still a lovely bright card.
Cards of the 1920s and 30s are strikingly more vibrant than those of the previous two decades. Possibly fuelled by a determination for positivity after the events of the Second World War, greetings cards became much more colourful and playful. This example epitomises this mood, and is typically chatacteristic of the time.
