Description

A silver and white embossed lace-paper envelope by Rimmel, mounted verso side up to display the gold foil heart which is affixed at the centre of the envelope flaps. On the recto is a large oval-shaped white address panel, which is blank. 'E.RIMMEL' is stamped at centre right of the panel. The envelope seems to contain a card of some description, but the heart-shaped seal is unbroken and it is not possible to view it.
