God is Love. [Mid-19th c. printed silk valentine]
The Lord’s Prayer is printed here within a heart placed within a decorative printed border. An embossed sheet of note paper describes the gifting of the silk heart from a paramour: “To Edith — / May Angels attend thee, / May their wings, fan every / Shadow from thy brow, / For none but bright, and holy things / Should wait on one so good as thou. Valentine. Feb 14th.”
