Held- Flapper Girl Valentines c. 1920-30's Lot x 24 American cartoon humor cardsBrian DiMambro- Antiquarian Books, Maps & Prints
(Americana, Valentine's Day, Valentine's Cards, Humor, Cartoon Art, Flapper Girls).
24 Comic Valentines.
Published 1925-30's, United States.
24 cartoon style humorous valentines, including original pictorial artwork paper envelope.
Artistic style very reminiscent of John Held Jr. and may well be by him.
Scarce set to find complete and so clean and fresh, "cards" (actually printed on paper) are worthy of collecting individually.
Publisher's color pictorial paper sheets, each blank on reverse, with the original envelope.
Item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Paper envelope well edge worn with chipping, short tears and separations along the seams, remains overall clean and attractive as an object.
Card paper is gently toned, mostly very fresh and clean in appearance. Well preserved complete set.
Still attractive on the shelf.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this rare vintage lot survives.
Cards measure c. 7" H x 5 3/4" W.
