Object information


Valentine card


Unknown (Printmaker)


Valentine card of cream laid paper, roughly 8vo size with a lithograph of black ink (uncoloured). A large central vignette of a couple dressed in regency costume, the male figure a soldier in uniform (probably London Volunteer Cavalry) with his horse standing beside him to the right. The couple embrace and look into one another's eyes. A small cottage is seen in the background to the left. A printed verse above and below: "Thou art the golden treasure of my Heart / My long lost Lover and my wish'd for Mate." The inside pages are blank.
One of a series of cards on cream laid paper with uncoloured lithographs, apparently all later reprints, the designs possibly taken from collections of love poetry published in the early nineteenth century by James Kendrew of York, and mounted in album P.14348-R.
