More SCHMUCKER VALENTINE Postcards


Here are more lovely Samuel Schmucker Valentine designs published by John Winsch.  All these postcards are embossed with the fancy lettering Winsch publishers used.   We open with a  lovely lady in a rain of hearts against a golden background, followed by two Valentine postcards with an international theme - Cupid visiting pretty ladies from foreign lands.
  



In the above postcard, even Cupid has dressed up in native style - very colorful!


The lady in green with a fabulous feathered hat plays a heart-shaped instrument surrounded by flying love letters, reminiscent of the flying heart being held by the beautiful woman in the last post.


A mailbox serves as a perch for Cupid in only a top hat and tuxedo jacket.  He holds a pretty bare babe wearing only a hat.  They are on the Valentine's Letter Box with a garland of roses, the symbol of the flying heart appearing once again.  This is one of a series of mail-theme Valentine postcards Schmucher designed with more below.  Witty and charming and just a bit risque, these all have wonderful detail and big gold hearts that serve as a perfect Valentine backdrop.





I hope you enjoyed these Schmucker/Winsch Valentine postcards, and that you have had a fine Valentine's Day!  Warm wishes from Toni in Florida
