Antique Valentines

on February 13, 2015

Today I’m sharing some of Grandma’s old antique valentines. Some of these even have moveable parts. Valentines these days aren’t really the kind that you would keep for a long time, to me they seem a bit cheap and flimsy. I remember Grandma saying that she got some of these in grade school. They’re all made on thick, high quality paper, and the lithography and graphics are just so great. They’re all still very bright and cheery and not at all faded.

These are so cute and always put me in the valentine spirit!

This postcard was sent to one of Grandma’s sisters in 1911.

The flower-pot on this one opens up and makes it a bit 3D, and there is a fold on the side of it which makes it stand up.

It might look a little weird here, but this one is 3D. You stand it up and it has a stone fence with a little garden gate! This one is my favorite!

009

The hat moves on this little cowboy and it makes it look like his eyes move back and forth. Too bad the puppy’s heart is ripped – he’s so cute!!!

This is another one of my favorites – it’s a big one! I love the expression on her face!

Don’t forget to send a valentine to your loved ones!

They’ll appreciate it!
