A paper folder for sorting valentines made by J.W.L. Glaisher




A sheet of cream laid paper folded in half to operate as a make-shift folder and inscribed in graphite in J.W.L. Glaisher's hand: 'cards / after 1870'. One of two such folders found within the collection, apparently used by Glaisher to organise his valentines prior to his handing them over to Catherine Parsons for arrangement and mounting in the Autumn 1924. See also Valentinesarchive9. Watermark: STRATHDON.
