This 4-3/4" 3-dimensional embossed Valentine card features a young Victorian era couple holding hands and exchanging Valentines. The base reads To My Valentine, the reverse or top side of the base has the verse "Roses sweet I often see, But you're the sweetest Rose for me". The background is an ornate carved fireplace with a big red heart and garland of blue forget-me-nots above. The back is marked Germany and signed From Frank. It appears a piece is missing from the top of the card above the flowers, as is one of the candlesticks at the upper right.
