Here’s a vintage 2-part hand-tinted postcard for you!
Last year I got all excited when I found a Triumph Tigress-esque valentine. Well it turns out I am a very lucky girl. Because a designer at Pottery Barn was probably one of the people I was bidding against on eBay. They feature the same valentine on a $12 card set, in a $20 plastic tumbler set, a $26 melanine plate set, in a paper heart garland and in a floor puzzle (available only in the stores.) Here’s a buying tip – if you just want the scooter plate, go to the stores and grab one. They’re just $6.50 and display wonderfully. The folks at my local store said everything would go on sale the week before Valentine’s Day.
Many thanks to Cara!
Laughing Elephant is a design firm in Seattle and they have this charming little fellow available as a blank greeting card (perfect for Valentine’s Day which is quickly approaching) and also as a Giclee art print, suitable for framing. The greeting card is printed on nice white stock and measures 7″ high and 5″ wide and is $3.00. The Art print measures in at 14″ high and 11″ wide and is $9.95. I think our hero has just won a race (hence the bubbly and the flowers) but I like to think of him as on his way to woo. You know how those Lambretta boys are . . . ; )
Thanks to Scoot! Magazine for the find. The card was featured in April Whitney’s “Collector’s Corner” feature in the December 2010 issue.
