c1910 religious Christmas Nativity postcard with fine color chromolithograph of Baby Jesus, the Holy Family Mary and Joseph, and the "Magi" – or Three Kings of the Orient – bearing gifts. Images are sharp and the color excellent. Christmas greeting is in Polish. Back caption "postcard" is in Polish, as is the handwritten message. Square white box in the lower right corner of the front (for personalized greeting??).
There is no publisher's name or logo, but the quality is excellent – most likely German, but possibly Polish-made.
PHOTO NOTE: The photos distort the clarity of the images and sometimes the intensity of the colors. The muted "grainy" look is a distortion. The colors are more vivid and the clarity greater when viewed in person. Minute defects are exaggerated by the scanning process, and many are barely noticeable when viewed in person.
CONDITION: Standard-sized postcard in very good condition for its age. Minor flaws do not involve central images. Light age discoloration and small light stains are limited to the borders, and are more noticeable in the photos than in person. The white border color is damaged in spots around the edges and in the square white box, and there is also a reinforced crease in the lower right white box. No postal cancellation or stamp. Message in Polish is readable. ALL FLAWS ARE OBVIOUS IN THE PHOTOS.
