Cute turn-of-the-century postcard published by Raphael Tuck & Sons. This card is named To My Sweet Valentine and is numbered 205 from the series entitled "Dainty Children". There are at least two known editions of this card - a similar (but later) version was produced circa 1911 also by Tuck with the same image but with the caption "Valentine Greeting" and instead was No.2917 in the set. Postcard features vibrant imagery of two Dutch children in period attire holding hands (note the wooden clogs on the lad).
Text on the back reads:
Raphael Tuck & Sons' "Dainty Children" Series of Valentine Post Cards No. 205.
Art publishers to Their Majesties the King and Queen. *Chromographed in Berlin
*Chromolithography was used as a technique to create separate colour layers during the printing process.
Condition: Light wear to edges and corners, light surface rubbing - fabulous antique condition for a 100-year-old postcard. All pictures herein are of the same card, but under different lighting and different backdrops (to show enhanced detailing).
