SECOND. Love Spell Puzzle Purse Valentine, limited edition
This product is currently sold out.
Enchant the one you love with this handmade Puzzle Purse based on Victorian valentines, medieval love spells, and poisonous plants.
Made popular during the Victorian era, these unique valentines were traditionally exchanged between lovers as intimate tokens of their devotion. Unfolding in a hypnotic pinwheel-like pattern, opening a Puzzle Purse slowly revealed a love poem with the main sentiment written at the very heart of the note. In true Victorian fashion, this unfolding was viewed symbolically as the act of "opening your heart to love."
The Love Spell Puzzle Purse Valentine puts a dark spin on the traditional Victorian love note with references to medieval magic and witchcraft. The poem begins with an offering of three tokens for your valentine that also happen to be ingredients in medieval love spells, but your valentine doesn't need to know that, right? Inside, the poem continues to name further ingredients such as a dove's heart, a cord knotted 9 times, beetle wings, and poisonous plants. The puzzle purse is designed in such a way that the reader must continuously turn the valentine to read the poem. This spiraling motion is slow and hypnotic, luring them deeper under your enchantment!
The Love Spell Puzzle Purse Valentine was created in 2019 in a limited edition of 100 (50 red and 50 gold). Although sold out, there were a handful of gold Puzzle Purses from the original printing that had minor imperfections. These are being offered here as "seconds" at a discount price.
