1902 Antique Vinegar Valentine Penny Dreadfuls A Great Man For Sale
1902 Antique Vinegar Valentine Penny Dreadfuls A Great Man
Product Description1902 Antique Valentine Tuck & Sons, A Great Man
This is an original 1902 Penny Dreadful / Vinegar Valentine Card. A very rare original from Tuck and Sons, printed in 1902. It measures about 8 3/4" x 6 3/4".
The penny dreadfuls were not beautiful or romantic, in fact they were quite the opposite. The verses are filled with humorous and rhyming insults. Insulting everyone and anyone. Most often they were sent anonymously to people that were not liked. The make it even worse, back then the receiver was the person who paid for the postage, so these poor individuals paid for the insults!
This is a wonderful rare collectors item. It would look nice framed, and of course you could send a penny dreadful to someone you know! One of a kind!
