Movable Valentine

London & New York: Ernest Nister; Dutton & Co., n.d., ca. 1890's. Stiff card. Single die-cut sheet brilliantly printed by chromolithography in Bavaria. 4 by 6 inches. It depicts an anthropomorphic sunflower, eyes closed, mouth pursed, with a bow and tab beneath. On the tab is printed You are the Sunshine my Heart'. When the tab is pulled, the movable mechanism moves the cheeks to display a broad smile, and at the same time opens the eyes.


The tab is creased else this is a very good copy of a rare Nister valentine.

. Very good. Item #21234
