Description

This postcard has a drawn blue and white frame around all sides of the postcard. On the bottom center portion of the frame, it reads "A Merry Christmas" in red and green script. The image in the center of the frame shows a youthful and smiling Santa Claus with a long, white beard, pink cheeks and lips, and blue eyes. He wears an emerald green coat with a green and fur-lined hood. Across his body is a tan sash for the bag of toys that is over his shoulder. In the bag of toys is a rocking horse, doll, teddy bear, and doll house. In his right hand, he holds up a doll wearing a white and pink bonnet in a long white lace skirt with a pink sweater.
