SALE I love everything about this 1919 Embossed Christmas Postcard featuring Santa Claus wearing a red and gold dotted robe and hat trimmed in fur, walking alongside a beautiful Angel Girl carrying a brightly lit lantern against the sunset sky! Santa is pulling his sled with a large toy sack on board, and there is lots of gold gilding used to outline the images, as well as highlight the Christmas tree Santa is carrying over his left shoulder. Just look at that beautiful moonlit sky in the background, and it looks as if the sun has just set. The light of the moon on the white snow and the bright light of her lantern brings warmth to a very cold night!
Although there is a message written to Miss Floy Young on July 14th, 1919 from her Mother, it was never postally sent, but would have required a one cent stamp in the US and Canada, and two cents in other countries. There's lots of embossing, and it's in very good condition other than a little expected wear on the corners. At one end on the back, it is marked: German American Novelty Art Series No. 1043 (6 Des.), Printed in Germany." I am always thrilled to get these wonderful Christmas postcards with Santa dressed in different robes other than what we see now, and this dotted in gold robe is no exception. He has a delightful smile and a beautiful beard! You won't be disappointed to add this to your collection of early Ephemera.
