Vintage Valentine: Flowermobile

One of the most unusual valentine postcards I've found is this one, circa 1911. It features an antique automobile festooned with flowers done in raised relief and liberally sprinkled with mica glitter. A cute little sailor drives the flowermobile to its romantic destination.


  1. I have some cars covered with flowers too, but no mica. I'm surprised that you would consider this one of your more unusual valentine postcards. Based on what I've seen, you have a bunch of very unusual stuff.

  2. Yes, I suppose you're right...creepy flippable head guy was definitely more unusual than this!
