Accordian Valentine
1 Accordian Valentine
NA Very Good 
N.p. N.d., circa 1890. Closed, 10 by 5.5 cm. You pull out tabs on each side and out spreads the bunched cray paper, just like the bellows of an accordian. Without stressing the cray paper -- risking tearing, the sides stretch to about 8 cm apart. Chromolithographic printing on the sides, with gilt for the buttons and keys, red hearts in the upper corners, decorative floral vignettes as might be found on an actual accordian, and printed underneath one of the keyboard tabs, "To my sweet Valentine". Intended as a charming novelty that might lovingly be given to an accordianist. Small cracks down center of paper from use.

[Sexist Valentine]  A Valentine from the "Little Woman"
2 [Sexist Valentine] A Valentine from the "Little Woman"
Minneapolis Buzza Craftcres 1941 NA Very Good 
Seven pages, each with an illustration of a pretty housewife who is inept around the house but loves to be her man's slave! Measuring 14.5 by 13.5 cm. She burns the toast, makes bad coffee, can't get the gas back on, can't fix the plumbing or balance the budget, yet she is a pleasure to the eye in applying herself to these tasks. With a red background, on paper folded over, with a piece of foil pasted on to depict the toaster. Very much a card of its times. With a short inked inscription on the final page. Otherwise, fine condition. 
Price: 25.00 USD
