Collectible antique black Americana/  racist  mechanical Valentine featuring a little girl 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. 

Please see all of our photos for a closer look at this piece. Check out our other listings for more antique Valentines. Thank you!
