Antique Victorian Valentine’s Day Postcard 1900s PFB

$9.00

Romantic antique Valentine’s Day postcard depicts cherubs floating above Cupid, holding a garland of puffy hearts and forget me not flowers. Cupid (often depicted as a chubby boy) is overcome with passion.

Beautiful chromolithographic colors, heavily embossed, and printed in Germany by the publisher PFB. It is postmarked 1909, and mailed to Jamaica, L.I. from Brooklyn. Slight corner wear, an age spot along the upper left edge, very fine condition overall. C. 1900’s antique paper collectible.

Note: the first image was "framed" in black in my editing program. The second picture shows the postcard as it is.

Postcard size approx. 3-1/2” W x 5-1/4”H.

Ready for framing, or your postcard collection, altered art, or scrapbooking projects. The shop watermark will not appear on your authentic (not a reproduction) postcard.

This item will be mailed in a protective sleeve and rigid mailer, USPS 1st Class everywhere in the world.

ALL ITEMS ARE INSURED against LOSS, THEFT, or DAMAGE (where allowed, by a third party insurer). This includes INTERNATIONAL BUYERS, where allowed. Depending on your country, we may or may not be able to insure your item, or there may be limitations in coverage. As each country varies, in this regard, send us a message, and we will provide options to suit your needs. We are flexible!

Note: If an International package is claimed as "lost" when, instead, the customer has refused the item at point of delivery by not paying Customs fees/VAT/duties, we will know the reason ("item not called for") on its return to us, and there will be NO insurance claim/refund.

When FREE SHIPPING is offered, the shipping method will be at our discretion.

INTERNATIONAL: ****NOTE:**** Etsy recently began adding the text "VAT included (where applicable)" and "GST included (where applicable)."
BohemianTrading is not registered to collect tax in other countries, so for the items in our shop, it is NOT "applicable" for us to charge/include tax. Therefore our items DO NOT include tax. All Customs duties, fees, VAT are to be paid by the Customer, and are not included in the purchase price. Please inform yourself of CUSTOMS FEES/VAT PRIOR to purchasing, so neither one of us experiences disappointment.

A true declaration of value will be made and the item(s) cannot be labeled as a "gift." Labels are electronically addressed, and cannot be modified. If your item is being sent to a commercial address, make sure to include the name of the business, as well.

FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS WHOSE PACKAGE IS RETURNED TO US FOR ANY REASON, including missing address information, a claim of non-receipt of customs notice, OR non-payment of CUSTOMS FEES/DUTY/VAT ("item not called for"): there will be NO REFUNDS. Please inform yourself of your country's Customs Policies PRIOR to making a purchase.

SHIPPING CHARGES: We offer shipping rates based on value and size of each item. If you want us to re-quote a rate, feel free to send us a message, and we will double check for you.

On International Orders, the USPS rates for 1 oz. through 8 oz. are the SAME. On average, a 1 item package weighs 4 oz.

NO REFUNDS FOR ITEMS CLAIMED BY PURCHASER AS BEING "LOST" unless they are INSURED. All of our packages are clearly addressed electronically per information provided by the customer.

IF YOU NEED IT FAST: Contact us, and we will quote you on overnight shipping.

PLEASE KNOW, we make every effort to get your package to you quickly and safely, but once it leaves our hands, it is out of our control. UNLESS YOU HAVE ASKED FOR AN EXPEDITED SERVICE such as overnight mail, shipping times can vary greatly, especially during the holiday season.

Returns & Exchanges

I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

Returns and exchange details

Generally, all sales are considered final. We value our customers, and respect the trust you have placed in our shop. Bohemian Trading Company only accepts returns if the item is substantially different from its description (we missed something), and will be handled on a case by case basis. We provide close up photos, complete descriptions, and dimensions so that you can make an informed decision to purchase an item.

You may not ask for a return due to color (all monitors vary), size (each listing has dimensions posted), buyer's remorse, or, "It is not what I was expecting! It's much bigger (smaller) than I thought." We consider buying/selling on Etsy to be a partnership based on information and communication. Bohemian Trading Company is an individually owned enterprise, so the buyer/seller partnership is important, if not personal.

IF WE MISSED SOMETHING, please contact us within three (3) days of receipt of your package so that we can authorize your return. Your return must be postmarked no later than two (2) days after it is authorized. The item must be returned in its original condition. Return shipping must include tracking and insurance, and is at the buyer's expense, and non-refundable.

NO RETURNS on discounted items or Layaways.

Cancellations: I do not accept cancellations.

RETURNS FROM THE EU (if for reasons other than our mistake) A RE-STOCKING fee of 20% will be deducted from your return. The Buyer is responsible for return shipping fees, and must include insurance and tracking to be communicated to the Seller. The return package must be postmarked no later than fourteen (14) days after its receipt, whether our mistake or not.

DAMAGE OR LOSS: Items are INSURED (based on destination country), and will be covered against damage or loss. We will assist you with this process. Please contact us immediately upon receipt of the damaged item, and be sure to keep all of the the packaging, and take a digital picture. Failure to follow these instructions will result in a denied claim by third party insurers, and no refund can be made. Your assistance will include signing a digital affadavit. Again, we are here to help!

Additional

ABOUT VINTAGE: Vintage and antique items have been used, if not loved, previously, and show their age in a variety of ways. These previously owned items can have patina, marks, imperfections, scratches, chips, cracks, glue residue, verdigris, plating loss, repairs, etc. Other than a light once over, we leave vintage jewelry in *as found* condition. It is understood that many collectors enjoy the toning that can only come with age, and cleaning or polishing can remove that patina or character. We also check that clasps work properly, ear screws function, and all stones are present. We try our best to note any condition issues, but if we miss something, and it bothers you, please bring it to our attention. YOUR HAPPINESS is very important to us!

If you wish additional photos of an item, send a message, and we will be happy to provide you with same.

VINTAGE = 25 to (75- 99) years old. ANTIQUE = 75-100 + years. For the purposes of simplicity, all our shop sections are labeled VINTAGE, though within them you will find true ANTIQUES (read the TITLES)

WE READ YOUR REVIEWS: We love to hear from our customers, so please let us know how we're doing.

ONE OTHER NOTE: Dimensions given are approximate. If exact dimensions are required, ask for a verification, and we will be happy to double-check. DO COMPARE the measurements given with something life-size so you can judge the scale of the item, as we use enlarged photos to show detail.

LAYAWAY can be arranged. Ask, and we will be happy to accommodate! Generally, 1/3 of the purchase price (plus shipping) for a down payment (non-refundable), and the balance payable in 45 days. Items must be over $100.00. There are no refunds or exchanges on Layaway items.

RESERVES can be made for a period of three days. If, at the end of (3) days, you are unable to complete your purchase, we will contact you to inform you that the item will be returned to our inventory. This is a courtesy to you, the buyer. Please don't abuse the privilege.
