Father Christmas Plays Pipe

Title

Father Christmas Plays Pipe

Description

The main scene of the card takes place on a plain background; in the upper right there is a circular inset of a snowy scene and house surrounded by holly. The main figures of the card are Father Christmas and his accompanying elf. Father Christmas is dressed in a multi-colored outfit; grey boots, blue pants, red and yellow short coat, yellow gloves, and green and red hat. The bag on his back is bursting with toys, including a doll, toy trumpet, and ball. He is playing a straight-shaft pipe, which he holds with his right hand. His short elf, to the left of the card, is dressed in blue stockings, red pants, a green shirt and hat while also playing a pipe. The greeting in the bottom left reads "A Merry Christmas".
