Intricately crafted Valentine

This small valentine shows in gold in the centre a couple sat on a stile. On the left hand side of them is the cut out figure of a woman on a blacony, and the right hand shows a man mounted on a steed. They are extending their hands to eachother. The poem inside reads: Dear girl, the rose an emblem of yourself, Of greater worth than miser's drossy pelf, Thy modest ways are by the violet shown, And the lily's purity denotes thine own.
