Vintage Valentines, c. 1920s

Here are three valentines I purchased at Verde Antiques and Rare Books. The two small ones have movable eyes, and the large one has a fan that flaps open to read "I'd like to vamp you for my Valentine." On her sock in a little circle you can read, "Louis Katz, NY  C 1923." There was a repair made on the back of the fan, so all the words don't show when the fan is moved. But I found the art irresistible.
