Regency Valentine Framed, Mounted & Glazed. Love Valentine Derbyshire Interest!
A really lovely Regency valentine, stunning colours, delightful script, even sporting the nervous mistake of the sender. From a private collector in Darley Dale, this is a rare find indeed.
“Dear Miss excuse these strange assaults,
For love is blind and sees no faults.
In fact my charming tender love,
I’m over head and ears in love”
Signed “Who (scratched through) can this be from”
Contemporary frame and mount.
The two circles are where it was clipped pegged to a nail on a fire place!
