Three-dimensional valentine, 3 3/4 inches high x 5 1/2 inches wide. Gold and white paper lace on top of a green background, topped with color cutouts, with the text Still hope, Ever the same, and My sincere love to you. The oval white and gold band around the center bouquet expands outward 1 inch. Made by the Whitney Valentine Company, which began making valentines in Worcester, Massachusetts, in 1866, and expanded to Boston, New York, and Chicago by 1888. The card opens to a small poem.
Oh, write to me, for when apart,
'T will cheer the lonely hour,
'T will shed a sunshine o'er the heart
Where happy clouds would lower.
Oh, write to me, that thy cherished love
Will never fade away,
But like the polar star above
Will shine where'er I stray.
