THESE IMAGES ARE NOT TO BE REPRODUCED IN ANY FORM!!
Here is a wonderful cabinet card of a very beautiful, artsy valentine playing the mandolin. The image has lots of context in the clothing and furniture and plants around her - looks like she was an artsy person who had an artsy place to live. She looks very relaxes and very happy in her own skin - something we all aspire to be.
I have not put the whole cab cards on here (now will I) because I hate the thought of people stealing my images - something I know someone will try to do. So I put on a photo of part of the card and then stripped it down to a fairly low res image - I know my request not to copy will stop the honest people but hopefully this will stop some of the others.......All my valentines also have wonderful backstamps too. Alas those who some to our little collectors paradise in Chester, Nova Scotia can see the originals in their full glory - otherwise this is going to be it for now. The images that I have posted today are from my small personal collection that is not for sale. Antiquarius has more than 10,000 images. I will try to post more soon.
Happy Valentine's Day all you collectors, and especially to those of you who have loved the things we have put on here - thanks so much from Antiquarius Antiques and Curiosities.
