Collectible antique black Americana/ racist mechanical Valentine featuring a little girl hiding and adult. The neck of the adult moves back and forth creating the illusion that the little girl is being kissed on the forehead. The piece is in overall good condition. The corners of the die-cut are fragile and contain small amounts of damage--particularly the edges of the child's hair. There is a built in stand attached to the back which is functional and sturdy, despite a crease line at the top where it was once folded. There is also a small, handwritten inscription written on the back in pen.
