These 2 vintage valentines are those I feel are mighty appealing. A great bonus too is art is the signed TWELVETREES, a collectable postcard artist!
These look like they could be a set. The card of the left has a cute typical artwork of kids of the artist's speciality ; white kids in a friendly valentine exchange. The card at the right is a similar situation, only the boy is in for a big surprise. The little sweet black girl has just peeked around her sunbonnet hat, and he is very surprised at what he sees. He says "In picking a Valentine do it with care, a real surprise might greet you there!" She is so cute---anyway you look at it.Who cares! But A bit derogatory probably. Just a part of the history of the times. We can't change it. But as a collectibe. this set is a "winner" in every way. One is stamped and sent...pre 1915 on both.
