Condition: Good, see photos.
Incredibly cute antique Valentine featuring a small Bavarian boy holding hunting accessories and a Valentine. There is a small cog attached to the back of the piece--via a brad--which spins in a circle which creates the illusion that the boy is walking continuously. The Valentine is in good condition overall. As with most antique paper, the edge and corners of the piece are delicate and should be handled with care to continue the continued life of the card. There are a few small blemishes and a small piece of the boy's hat has fallen off and separated. The duck the boy is carrying is also a bit banged up. There is a small handwritten inscription on the back which is non longer legible and it is dated 1927.
Please see all of our photos for a closer look at the piece overall. Check out our other listings for more antique Valentines. Thank you!
