Valentine manufactured by Eugene Rimmel, entitled “Hawthorn Hope.”

“One from a series of twelve valentines, illustrating the Language of Flowers in a novel and charming manner. Each flower is represented by a nymph coquettishly attired in floral garb and the sentiment it expresses is appropriately conveyed by some quotation from a well known poet. The designs, due to J Chéret's spirited pencil, are executed in the most superior style, and may be pronounced perfect masterpieces of chromo-lithography”.
