Valentines Day in Australia

    In Australia during the gold rush, miners who were flushed with new found wealth from the Ballarat mines were willing to pay a pricey sum for elaborate valentines. Merchants in Australia would send orders of a thousand pounds at a time.

    The most extravagant of valentines were made of a satin cushion, perfumed, ornately designed with flowers, colored shells, and would also have a taxidermy humming bird or bird of paradise adorning it. This was all contained in a neatly decorated box which were considered of high standing, fashionable and most expensive.
