Antique Valentine Diecut Ship & Cabin Honeycomb Vellum Germany Victorian Vintage:
Antique Die-cut Valentine from GermanyDescription: Antique diecut Valentine from Germany. It really is exquisite with the regard to the quality and details. A three-dimensional Valentine with diecut, embossing, gold gilding, honeycomb tissue, and a floral printed vellum paper window! Marked "printed in Germany" under the waves on the bottom right. When laying flat, it measures 9.75" across. Height is 6.5". Depth when standing is approximately 2.25".
Gorgeous condition for the age of this item. The few flaws that I see include a few bends and creases (lower left corner and the scrolling flowers atop the state room). While the honeycomb does not appear to have any torn spots that I can see, it does has some "squares" that are larger than others. Not sure if it was manufactured that way or if some honeycomb was torn out over the years). The most amazing thing to me is that the transparent vellum with roses paper (in the window) does not have any tears in it!!!! It is a gem!
I am going to list it for a week as a buy-it-now for my asking price, but if it doesn't sell, I will list it at sale. These have gone higher than my asking price at sale, so if you are wanting this piece, you might want to try to grab it at the buy-it-now price.
Due to the high value of this piece and the delicate nature of the piece, it will NOT be shipped internationally. It will be carefully packaged and insured when shipped in the US.The majority of the items that I sell on arevintageitems obtained from estate sales.As such, the items are not perfect.Even those items that are in great shape considering their age will usually have some minor flaws simply due to the age, general use, and shelf life.I am not an expert in every item that I sell, but Ido my best to describe my items as accurately as possible and to the best of my ability, flaws and all.
