Title

Santa Claus Giving Toys and Treats to a Young Boy

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and has a white background. In the center of the card, Santa Claus wears a red robe and hat with pale blue trim and also wears red gloves. He has a long white beard, but no mustache on his more youthful face and a small lock of white hair on his forehead is visible from under his hat. His hat has a blue tuft of hair on top and stands up, with gold stripes running along it. In his right hand, he holds a white bowl of red apples at waist level with green leaves poking out. In his left hand, he holds a black car at shoulder level. He smiles and looks down at a young boy in front of him, on the right side of the postcard. The boy stands on his tip toes, reaching up with bare hands towards the car in Santa's hand. He wears a grey sweatshirt with green cuffs and a green waistband, and a matching grey and green hat and a long red scarf around his neck. His shorts are a green-yellow color and he has gold tights on with dark brown shoes. He looks up with a smile at Santa Claus. To Santa's right is a woven basket filled with toys: a ball hangs from a net bag on the back right corner, a horse is seen, a teddy bear hangs out of the front of the basket, and an apple and walnuts sit in the snow in front of the basket. Behind these characters is a snowy hill with bare trees and a house in the upper right corner covered in snow and evergreens behind it. At the center bottom of the postcard it reads "Frohliche Weihnachten" in black, curled script.
