Object Detail


Brief Description
Mixed media card with an image of a young cricketer at the centre. The item is made from layers of material attached to a piece of card - an embossed paper doily, gilded petals and images of trees with a picture of a young boy next to a set of stumps. The boy is wearing cap, red striped shirt and brown breeches, and he carries a ball in his right hand. The motto "Requite my love" appears in a floral border beneath the image, suggesting that the item may be a Valentine's Day card. Writing on reverse reads "10".
