Children Grasp at Father Christmas

Title

Children Grasp at Father Christmas

Description

Father Christmas is dressed in a long tan coat and wears a blue hat with a string of beads around it. To the left of the card he holds a staff that looks like a decorated lyre; he has a small mallet in his other hand. Not standing higher than his waist, two children - a boy and a girl - tug at him, asking for toys. The boy holds a book and is dressed in blue, while the girl is in red and white. Next to them is a basket of toys with a jester doll propped up against it. "A Merry Christmas" is printed in the bottom right, and there is a pine cone and evergreen decoration stretching across the left side and top of the card.
