Sweet, little mechanical Valentine from the 1920's featuring a little girl in a bonnet holding a marionette. The is a die-cut cog attached to the back of the image with a brad which moves in a circle--allowing for the illusion that the girl is walking continuously. This piece is in good, but used antique condition and the edges and corners of the card show evidence of its age. There are several spot on the piece which look to be un-punctured, for example: the paper underneath the arms and hat. The top leg of the marionette has a small crease where it was once folded on top of itself. The back has a pencil-written inscription and it is dated 1929.
