Vinegar Valentine, Humor, Lonely Clerk, Chromolithograph, 1900
An original and very hard to find "Vinegar Valentine" or "Penny Dreadful" titled, "Put Your Neck in the Noose." These sarcastic and sometimes mean-spirited notes were usually sent anonymously to those who weren't liked, and were usually sent COD so the recipient also had to pay the postage. Mounted on a standard acid-free 11" x 14" board, image including margins measures 10" x 13.5". Published in the US, circa 1900. This is an original chromolithograph, not a reproduction.
