About this Item

Octavo. Single-sheet valentine. This "cobweb"-style valentine was so-named for its intricate lacework and circular central device, which, in this instance, is decorated with flowers. This circular element pulls out, creating a delicate, detailed peep show labeled, "Road to Happiness," which depicts two lovers sitting on a bench in a garden with a church in the background. A spray of flowers on the front bears an embossed medallion with a bouquet of flowers and a pineapple, which is wrapped with a banner reading, "Listen to me my love." Besides this sentiment, the card bears no other text and is not inscribed. The valentine is covered with fine white paper lace over a pale green background, with gold- and copper-painted embossing. Embossing is slightly rubbed, else a fine example of a highly unusual valentine. (Lee, pp.60-61, 127). Bookseller Inventory # 22834
