Father Christmas Looks Down on Sleeping Child from Roof

Description

The card is split into two scenes by a holly vine. The top depicts Father Christmas on the snowy roof with the moon shining over his shoulder. He is dressed in brown and carries a full basket of toys on his back. He leans one arm against the chimney, and with the other he is holding evergreen branches. The bottom of the card depicts a sleeping long-haired, blonde child. Around her are toys including a doll and a rabbit playing a drum. The upper right of the card reads "Compliments of G.A. Schwarz, No 1006 Chestnut St. Philadelphia."
