Hen & Girl Vintage Valentine



I love this Valentine for the details. Look at the ribbon threaded through the basket and the hearts! The hen’s wattles look like a big red bow, and the feathers have perfect Rhode Island Red coloring. In too many Valentines the anatomy is so off that it’s obvious that the artists had never seen a real chicken. I’ve seen chickens with duck feet, and hens with rooster plumage. This one, though, gets it right. You know that those eyelashes are there for a whimsical touch and not because the artist didn’t know any better.

Remove the paper doll girl to read the message. So sweet.



  1. Really neat card! I still like to purchase cards that have a removable part. I find them at some Amish stores I visit.
