"Anthropomorphic" is a magic word on eBay. It means giving human qualities to an inanimate object - i.e. a smiling peach Valentine or a crying salt and pepper set. Anthropomorphic decorative items were popular in the 1950's to early 1960's. They are great sellers! Here are a few of my anthropomorphic items on eBay:

Devil Valentine by Carrington, 1920's to 1930's Vintage
If you read this blog often, you know how much I love vintage ephemera - especially Valentines and Christmas cards. This is a real charmer, and it's very unusual ... I just had to share it with you.
It's a little Devil and a little girl in a masquerade costume. I would date it as 1920's to 1930's vintage, and it's by Carrington. It is a real charmer!
