1938 Mechanical Snow White Valentine Card

Probably the most well-known of the vintage Snow White "mechanical" Valentine's Day cards was a series which featured the princess and all seven of the dwarfs. On the Snow White card, she's pictured holding a broom. Move the lever downward and the squirrel appears from behind it holding a "heart" card.

Text reads, "You are the fairest in the land. If you'll be mine - 'twill be just grand." At lower left corner is the copyright imprint, "© 1938 W.D. ENT." In lower right, "MADE IN U.S.A."

Card measures 5.875" high.
