Embossed Victorian Era Christmas Postcard Little Bonnet Girl With Her Doll Gold Gilt
SALE Straight from the very early 1900's, this Embossed Christmas Postcard features an adorable little girl with a bonnet as big as she is, carrying her doll on one arm and touching the candlelit Christmas tree with her other hand. She has a head full of ringlet curls, and the sweetest pink gathered dress. Not sure if she has a French or German baby doll, but she too has a bonnet and is wearing a long gown. The colors on this postcard are more like the Victorian Christmas colors with a peachy pink glow on the left hand side. There's lots of gold gilt, including a 6 pointed star towards the bottom center. Just to the right of "Christmas Greetings" at the bottom, you can faintly read the number "3632." I love the real candles that they actually lit on the tree, and the red balls you see almost look like they could be fruit, perhaps plums or pomegranates. This postcard has been written on in pencil on the back, and it's showing wrinkles and wear to the edges. I just could not pass it up though, as I love to find the old ones with the Antique dolls the little girls played with! I believe you will like it too.
