Incredibly cute pop-out mechanical Valentine from the 1920's. When moved from the back, two other small children alternate peaking out from behind the tent. This piece is in fair to good condition for its age. As with the majority of paper products this old, the edges and corners are in delicate condition and show their years. The body of the small bird--at the top of the card--has been bent over itself and has a noticeable fold line across it. There are small imperfection across the piece, but they are small enough that they are not easily noticeable. The small sand bar in the foreground of the card pops out to create a three dimensional effect and also supports the weight of the card when it is standing up. There is a small pencil written inscription on the back which reads: "To Elaine, from Buddy 1928"
