Rare Early 1900's Passenger Ship Valentine

Just had to share this picture -- probably the most unusual Valentine I've ever researched and listed. This is an early 1900's vintage passenger ship Valentine. It is the same vintage as the Titanic or the White Star Line, but there is no ship name listed. It opens up with a delicate honeycomb trim on the base of the card. I think it is really beautiful!

Nothing says love like a gun themed vintage Valentine!

From the cowboy and cowgirl collection ... a little children's die-cut Valentine featuring a gun in a holster. This is 1950's vintage.

1920s Valentine of Ice Skating Children

This beautiful little card (about 4" high) is a Whitney Made card. It's 1920's vintage and features two children ice skating on a frozen pond. Much too pretty not to share!

1920's - 1930's Valentines

Just a few beautiful vintage Valentines. I would date these as 1920's to 1930's. They are made in the USA, no maker's mark.

Unusual Mechanical Valentine, c. 1910's - 1920's

Hi and a belated Happy New Year to my blog readers!

I'm scanning and listing ephemera the next few weeks, so should have some vintage cards to share with you. I absolutely love this vintage mechanical card. A little boy climbs a tree by means of a lever to the left side of card. He is reaching for a bird's nest in the top of the tree. Very, very sweet. I would date this as 1910's to 1920's.
