A Joyous Christmas Pull Open Postcard

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and has 3D snow impressions around much of the illustrations and along all four sides and corners. The postcard is otherwise colored with blues, black, and gold. In the center of the postcard is an incomplete Star of David with a 3D impression of a winter scene with Santa Claus carrying a lantern and bag of toys. He holds the lantern in front of him with his right hand and it is shown to be glowing brightly. In his right hand is a cane and over his shoulder is a large bag of toys. Behind him is a winter scene with a house and bare trees. Around this Star of David scene are snow, tree, and candle flourishes as decoration. On the bottom center of the postcard it reads "A Joyous Christmas" in gold script. Inside the postcard it reads: "With all good wishes for a happy Christmas. When the Christmas hearths are glowing and each heart is overflowing, with warm kindliness anew--While the pleasant hours are fleeting, I am sending fondest greeting, and a host of wishes true. H. M. Burnside" It has decorative flourishes about the typography in grey.
