Hearts for the Year 1800

Description

Five women wearing heart shaped necklaces. From left to right, their likenesses are captioned, "My Heart is a heart of Alabaster pure as the driven snow," "A Heart of fire stone, perfect inflammability," "Topaz - a golden heart, a rich city widow at your service," "Amethyst for over true blue never stains," "A heart of Emerald I'm pining with despair," "I am a Cornelian - bleeding with affection," and "Beware ye Beaus, the feather catching Amber."
