This exquisite example of an early Sailor’s Valentine is unique because of the raised floral wreath, dating it circa 1830. There is a similar one in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, a gift of Queen Mary. The large octagonal frame is mahogany, rather than the usual cedar, with an ivory escutcheon. The central wreath, mounted en tremblant, rests on a raised silk base, and may even have been a wedding hairpiece.
