Adorable little mechanical Valentine with a small girl and boy doing laundry. When the lever on he bottom of the piece is pulled, the boy pops up in the background and the girl's arm moves to adjust the clothesline. This piece is not in the greatest of shape, but its subject matter, sturdy condition and bright colors make up for it. As with a majority of antique paper of this type, the edges and corners have been compromised due to age and storage. An example of this would be the girl's bonnet which has a large crease from being folded at one point. The built in stand at the bottom back of the card is still attached and functional. There is also a small pen written inscription on the back.
