This delightful valentine has an embossed chromolithographed print fixed to the front of a lace paper envelope.

On the reverse just visible between the perforations is the green perfumed sachet.

“Valentines were really the innocent love-links of the humbler classes, and while they would infuse anxiety, and thought, and affection, and curiosity, and sometimes disappointment into a thousand minds - they often carried balm to a wounded heart, blessings to a happy spirit, and woke the first blush of felicities that were to crown a life !”
