It doesn't matter what time of year it is! This sweet, folk art, framed, "love wish" is perfect for any time of year when you love someone! This four-heart print is cut out and matted on dark purple velvet on wood; it is matted in period gilt, and surrounded by a walnut period frame. Dates most likely to late 1800s, early 1900s.
The first heart reads: A Golden Wish: Thy memory, as a spell of love, come o'er my mind — as dew upon the purple bell, As perfume on the wind, As music on the sea. As sunshine o the river; — So hath it always been to me: So shall it be forever.
The second and fourth hearts contain art and a sash that reads: "I Request Farther Time My Sweet Roses You'll Spare"
The third heart reads: Purity: If ever life should seem to thee a toilsome way, And gladness cease to beam upon its clouded day; If, like the weary dove, o'er shoreless ocean driven, Raise though thine eyes above; There's rest for thee in heaven.
