Figures with Pansies. [c.1880]

Medium-sized textured paper Valentine (16cm x 12cm approx.) printed in pink, red and gilt; overlaid with lace paper design and coloured ornaments - a cherub, a girl holding a bouquet and some pansies; printed poem inside, with decorative motifs.

Verse inside reads:

"Since all fair things in

Nature speak to me,

Sweetheart, of thee,

I have sent Cupid

out along the way

That thou wilt come to-day

To make each twig and tree

Valentine from-

me."
