Alamedas Pauline’s Antiques Highlighted Collection of Antique and Vintage Valentines Day Offerings

Alameda, CA (PRWEB) February 16, 2012

Pauline’s Antiques, providing the finest antiques in Alameda, focused on antique and vintage Valentines Day items during this years holiday.

Given the popularity of mass-produced and handmade Valentines Day items that have been gifted since the early 1800s, this commercialized holiday has become one of the most collected due to a recipients habit of saving these perishable tokens of affection. This creates a boon for todays collector.

“The history of Valentines Day dates back from the ancient Roman fertility festival celebrated every Feb. 14 of each year,” Michelle Kelley of Pauline’s Antiques said. “In the fifth century, the Roman Catholic Church adapted Feb. 14 as the feast date of St. Valentine, a martyred priest who performed marriages despite a ban on marriages imposed at that time.”

One interesting aspect of the legend of St. Valentine is that he was martyred on Feb. 14. It was not, however, until a thousand years later that people began to associate love with St. Valentines Day, according to http://www.go-star.com. At first, non-poetic types hired poets to craft love letters for their sweethearts, but by the late-18th century, printers began producing the modern precursor to todays greeting card. By the mid-19th century, the commercialization of the venerable holiday was in full swing, and the printed Valentines Day card all but usurped handwritten letters.

The traditional Valentine comes in many shapes and sizes; from delicate laced paper folding cards to intricate geometric assemblage of sea shells, framed behind glass. One may find Victorian three-dimensional, die-cut chromolithograph from the 1890’s; German Honeycomb Paper-Puff from 1910; or handmade Valentines Day cards from famous people.
