The gorgeous, early 1900s Victorian Valentine card is in very good, unsigned condition! It has a layered, lacy design with die cut edges and small decorations attached. The inside is very clean, without any stains, and no writing whatsoever. There is an illustration inside of a rooftop with some birds along with poem in blue that reads:
When thou art nigh, it seems
A new creation round;
The sun hath fairer beams,
The lute a softer sound.
Though thee alone I see,
And hear alone thy sigh,
'Tis light, 'tis song to me,
'Tis all- when thou apt nigh.
The back of the card is unwritten on and clean. The card has two short edge tears that don't detract from its appearance. Despite not having any signature, this card was received by someone. The original fancy embossed envelope with stamp and Feb. 14, 1906 postmark is included. They would look great if framed and matted together. This 111-year-old card would also make a wonderful Valentine for someone special in your life!
