Scarce German Christmas Postcard, GEL Santa Claus and Cherubs Deliver Gifts
This postcard was published by the M.A.B. Co. in Germany, c. 1910. The number is “15984 gel. GOLD.” The back is used, but unsent. The scene depicts an excellent early Santa Claus. He wears a long ermine fur trimmed red robe and cap, both decorated with gold details. His walking stick has a miniature Christmas tree on its top and he carries a gold sack over his shoulder. Two angelic cherubs help Santa by also carrying a sack filled with goodies. Light streams from inside the house where they’ll soon deliver the gifts.The postcard appears close to perfect until it is held to the side in good light. One sees crazing on the colors but the crazing has a fused appearance with no loose particles. There are creases on the lower corners. A single piece of missing gel is on the left corner crease. The overall condition is GOOD+. This scene is very hard to find as an embossed postcard and this is the only one I’ve seen with GEL finish. Store it in a protective sleeve and it should stay in good display condition for years to come.
