Description
 
A single-fold 7 3/4" x 4 7/8" lithograph valentine printed on plain paper.  Image depicts a strolling somewhat sorrowful appearing couple. Decorative floral and filigree border. The verse below reads: That arching brow and clustering hair-- That face all void of art-- The speaking glance, and modest air, Are pictured in my heart. 'Twas Love alone the image drew, That image dear to me; And as an offering kind and true. I send it now to thee." Inside is blank. . Given the appearance, appears to be American, Civil War era.
