Die-cut Valentine Postcard May Happiness Be Thine Hearts Girl Fence

By: N/A

Price: $9.95

Publisher: Unknown:

Seller ID: 0134

Condition: Fine


What a beautiful card this is -- more greeting card than postcard, as there is a poem on the back and no stamp box. Beautiful die-cut edges give it a lacy look and the edges of the design, including the hearts, are embossed. There's no date and no evidence of origin, but it's a beauty and was clearly treasured. The poem reads "I send this word to you my love, It will always hold true, As long as you love me, my love, I surely will love you." Could be a Valentine, but could also be a romantic missive any time of year. The message on the front is "May Happiness Be Thine" View more info

Six Blue Vintage Valentines, One is a Stand-up

By: N/A

Price: $14.00

Publisher: circa early 1900's

Seller ID: 0172

Condition: Very good


A cute little clutch of blue Valentines, one of which stands up in great working order. There's a second stand-up one too -- the lacy one with the little girl holding a closed parasol in the lower row to the far right. She is in good condition as well and her mechanism is not torn, but it's lost its "give" and she no longer can stand alone. She measures 3"x5-1/2" while the big one measures 4"x5-1/4". The rest of the cards are printed on paper and open up to display small verses. These are clean and bright and have penciled names on the backs. Altogether a a pretty little set. View more info

Price: $14.95

Seller ID: 0196

Condition: Fine


This card is so crisp and new you'd think it WAS new, but it comes from the collection of the original owner, Sophie Nundahl, from whom I have many, many cards, most sent to her, dated from 1906 to 1914. This one was never sent through the mail, but Sophie penciled her name on the address side of the divided back. Card is embossed around the edges, but not in the center. There is no indication of publisher. View more info

Have A Little Pity On My Poor Heart Valentine Postcard

By: N/A

Price: $12.95

Publisher: Unknown: Unknown

Seller ID: 0221

Condition: Near Fine


Very, clean, nice card not sent in the mail, but with a message on the divided back which reads "From your friend, Guess Who?" and was addressed to Sophie Nundahl, Perry North Dakota School No. 3. As you can see form the photo, the sender crossed out the stamp box and added some symbols whoch I cannot decipher. An unusual design on this one! No date, but likely in the 19-teens, as we have many cards sent to Sophie Nundahl. View more info

Large Moveable Valentine with Stand Dog Lapping Bowl of Milk

Price: $20.00

Seller ID: 0232

Condition: Very Good


Too cute -- and this comes from a cat person! I'm enclosing two pix with this one because it's a moveable -- move the puppy's tail up and down and his tongue goes in and out. The message reads, "I like my milk for breakfast And Meat when I would dine, And best of all, I like to spoon, With you, my Valentine." At its widest point the card (heavy cardstock) measures 8" wide and at it's tallest point 6-1/2" high. It has no writing on the back and the stand still works, as I stood it up to take the photos. It shows a tiny bit of edge wear to the bow and along the edge on the bottom left side and t... View more info

To My Heart's Elect Cupid Flying on a Key Blue Foral Wreath 1910 Medina, Seville, Ohio

Publisher: New York & Berlin, International Art Publishing Company: 1910

Seller ID: 0281

Condition: Very good


Very pretty card in pastels and very imaginative too. The card is embossed and clean and attractive. It was sent Feb. 11th, 1910 to Bertha Randall, Medina Ohio from her cousin who lived in next-door Seville. The message, written in pencil, reads, "Dear Cousin, Will be there with bells on. Will get there about 4:10 or 4:20. Mabel." This is an interesting message for two reasons. One is the slangy "be there with bells on", a comment which remains part of the vernacular today. The other reason is the specific times quoted. Mabel must have been taking the interurban from Seville, Ohio to Medina,... View more info

This is TOO cute -- and I'm actually a cat person! But who could resist such an adorable puppy, especially one with fuzzy velvety black fur! He's die-cut with a stand at the back that has never been used and has no names or writing (see photo 2).His message says, "I'm Pup-posin' That You're Mine; I Love You. I never Growl or Snarl, It's True -- But I'd Snap at the Chance of Winning You!" At the highest point -- from heart to bottom edge -- the card measures 12" tall and is 9-1/2" wide at the bottom.

What a charming Valentine! Not only is it pretty, but it also retains it's ability to stay open. When folded flat the white portion clearly reads "To my Valentine." There's also a small message on the side of the cart with part of it in the flowers. It reads "To My Valentine: In these blue forget-me-nots, In these fragrant roses too, Read the message fond and true, From my faithful heart to you." The card shows no names or personalized writing. Again, when folded, the card measures 6-1/4" at the widest area and 5-1/2" at the tallest. View more info

Condition: Fine condition


Beautiful, pristine, magazine with jut a bit of rusting to staples I bought a lot of these at auction and all are in this wonderful condition. I was excited to see a literary brand name that I recognized in this issue too -- that of William Dean Howell, a novelist, playwright and literary critic of his time. In this issue he has the first story which is titled "The Coast of Bohemia." Other stories discuss making Battenburg lace; a Valentine revival with many ideas for celebrating the day; the division of family income; making a skirt; fashion; the new mould crochet; and a New England miracle ...
