Valentine's Day reached its height of popularity during the romantic Victorian age.
Why this lady is dressed up in Native American garb is unclear. Or maybe the Victorian idea (this image is from a Victorian postcard) was that Valentine's Day had penetrated to Native American culture. The Victorians did love to dress up in exotic costumes, so maybe that was part of the idea behind this image.
Our blank notecards are custom printed at our location in Seattle, WA. They come bagged with an envelope. We love illustration art from old children's books and early, printed ephemera. These cards reflect this interest in bringing delightful art back to life.
