The folding card features a love heart on the cover with the printed words 'My Husband My Love'. 

Winehouse has handwritten inside:


You really are all I've got Blake.

Don't forget us I plead with all my heart

Your Wife Amy xx" 

Winehouse has added three hand drawn love hears and her signature.

The card is sold with it's original envelope addressed to Fielder-Civil when has at at her majesties pleasure at HMP Edmund's Hill in Suffolk.

The envelope was posted from St Lucia in February 2009. Winehouse lived in St Lucia for three months to distance herself from her problems in London in order to record music for her, never released, third album.

Fielder-Civil had been jailed in November 2007 for assault and attempting to pervert the course of justice, receiving a 27 month sentence.

He was released from prison on 25th February 2009, 11 days after receiving the Valentine's Card, and commenced divorce proceedings against Amy on discovering she had embarked on a holiday romance whilst in St Lucia.

The divorce was granted in July 2009 and became final in August 2009.

Amy Winehouse died on 23rd July 2011.

Given her sad membership of the '27 club' Amy Winehouse memorabilia is rare and extremely popular with collectors.

As a benchmark figure RR Auction sold a bog standard 'Amy' signature on card for $1,004 in June 2021.  

An earlier Valentine's card from Amy to Blake was sold in May 2022 at Julien's in Los Angeles. That was also written to Blake in prison, and was signed "Your wife, mermaid + partner in crimes of the heart. Your gem, your Amy".

This card actually sold for $12,800 against an estimate of $1,000 - $2,000.

So the signed and inscribed Valentine's card being offered at IAA, with it's history, would be a relative bargain within the auctioneers estimate of €2,000-€3,000.
