Old Victorian Standup Valentines
These two old Valentines had belonged to Tim's grandma, his dad's mom. She had a nice little box of them collected from her childhood.
So last night Tim's mom gave me these two for a birthday gift. One of these is from a girl with the last name Atkinson, which is my children's last name. So she felt it appropriate they go to me. They are very delicate. These are the standup style, with three separate lithographed pieces that fold down flat. I love old Valentines, so this will be a nice addition to my collection. These are probably the oldest ones I have. Thanks mom in law. I love it when she gives me old things that had been in the family. I will treaure these always.
