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.
