Nice image of Santa with a large bag full of toys and a little girl peeking over the gate at him. This early image of Santa shows him with the traditional red suit but instead of it being trimmed in white it is trimmed in dark fur. His beard isn't as big and as full as we know it now.
Signed Clapsaddle on the front, the back is undivided which dates this card from 1901 to 1907. That is the way we would date this card as it has not been mailed and does not have a post mark. Small message on the back to Virgil...good antique condition with some age related soiling.
