Father Christmas Blesses Three Children

Title

Father Christmas Blesses Three Children

Description

The whole scene of the card is done in slightly blurred yet colorful watercolor-type style. Father Christmas stands on the right, in a long purple robe and hat with a bag of toys on his back and tree over his right shoulder. He has his left hand outstretched to bless the three children arrayed before him. On the left, there is an older boy dressed in green and gold sitting on a white bench. In the middle is a girl, dressed in gold, kneeling on the colorful rug with her hand raised to Father Christmas. The third child is a boy dressed in purple and blue, also on the rug, and turned away from Father Christmas. In the background is a gold-framed painting and a white door, on which "A Merry Christmas" is printed.
