Fun and colorful antique 1920's mechanical Valentine featuring a two children exchanging Valentines inside a bathing tent. When toggled back and forth, the boy moves up and down while the girl peaks out of the tent. This card is in good shape for its age and delicate nature. There looks to be a small piece which has broken off the top of the tent which is now lost to history. There are several small fold lines--most noticeably across the boy's neck and on the tip/ edge of the bottom sand strip. There is a handwritten inscription on the back in pen and the date (1930) written in pencil.
Please see all of our photos for a closer look at the piece. Check out our other listings for more antique Valentines. Thank you!
