Description
 
 

Two die cut, easel back, mechanical cards. The first valentine is 5 1/4" x 3 1/4" boy with a comb in one hand and a brush in the other. He has a grin on his face from ear to ear. Move his right arm and he will brush his hair. The verse reads, ' A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, A hair on the head is worth two in the brush; and when I start brushing this hair of mine, I'm thinking of you my VALENTINE.'  Lower right corner printed in Germany. The second valentine is 4 3/4" x 3 1/4" girl with a table in front of her with nail polish, nail file, and scissors. She is bent over with polish in her right hand. When you move her arm she will polish her nails on her left hand. The bottom verse reads, ' When you polish your nails, please think of me, For like them I like to shine; I'll be "on hand" most joyfully, If you'll be MY VALENTINE.' The condition is excellent. Reverse has pencil inscription.
