The main scene is a thin, centered rectangle featuring Father Christmas. He is dressed in a purple coat and hat, carrying a tan bag on his back, and bending down to pick up a basket of toys. In the basket are a doll, trumpet, ball, and other bright items. There are also a few objects scattered on the ground. Around the main scene is a branch of holly. The greeting at the bottom reads "May you be blest / this Christmastide / With all good things."
