Title

Santa Claus Leading Cherubs Through a Forest Postcard

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and is set in a nighttime forest where Santa Claus carries a lit torch and leads five cherub angels as they carry toys. He stands in the center of the postcard in an open space and looks down at the angels, holding holly leaves in his hand. Over his right shoulder hangs holly leaf garland. Behind him a crescent moon and starry sky is seen between bare trees with small evergreen plants around them. The five cherubs are wearing various dresses and have small white wings on their backs. They carry a basket of apples, toy horses, dolls, a bag of toys, and a drum. They wear fur lined boots as they walk forward. In the bottom center of the card it reads "Merry Christmas" on a pink scroll surrounded by holly leaves and berries.
