Title

"National Santa Claus Series" Postcard with American Santa Claus

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and has a white background. On all sides is a white border. In the upper border it reads in all caps black lettering "NATIONAL SANTA CLAUS SERIES." Under this, taking up most of the postcard, is a green holly leaves and red holly berries frame. On each side of the frame in the center are criss-crossing green ribbons making an "X." Inside of this frame is the upper left portion of an American flag, showing the blue square with white stars and alternating red and white stripes around it. In front of the flag stands Santa Claus smoking a cigar. He stands on the left side of the frame and looks out with smiling eyes. On his head he wears a white top hat with a blue band with white stars on it, reflecting the flag behind him. He has thick, long white hair and a thick, long white beard with rosy cheeks and white eyebrows. He wears a black coat with a black gun belt diagonally crossing his chest from his left shoulder to his right hip. The belt has a gold buckle near the center of his chest. His two hands grab the lapels on his coat, and he wears tan mittens on them. Under the frame with this image on the left side it reads "1998," in the center it reads "UNITED STATES" and from the center to the right of the frame it reads "Copyright 1907 Ullman Mfg. Co. N.Y." Under this frame and typography, there is a white space for writing. In handwritten script, it reads "Will write more later. Baby is lovely will be six months old Saturday. Has 1 tooth."
