A valentine manufactured by Jonathan King on embossed paper by Joseph Mansell.
The hand-painted apple lifts up to reveal a cry from the heart:

Will you love me as I love you?

“The first valentine is like the first baby, a delight when it comes, a wonder and a thing of joy, but fated to be eclipsed by the second, although that second may not be so pretty”.
