Title

Tiny Santa Claus with Toys and a Lantern

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically. It has roughed edges with a white border around all sides. In the center of the card is a snowy scene with a gray sky and snow falling. A very short and very stout and smiley Santa Claus stands holding toys in both arms. On his head is a blue hat with a fuzzy tuft and gray lining with an evergreen twig on it. His face is rosy and he has a long white beard. Under his right arm he holds a rocking horse and an umbrella in his hand. In his left are wrapped paper packages with string and a drum. He wears red mittens and in his left hand he holds a glowing round lantern. His coat looks to have a checked pattern and is blue and green with the lantern light. He wears black boots covered in the snow on the ground. Under his image the card reads, "Lum Weihnachtsfeste die besten Grube" in silver script.
