"Christmas Greetings" Female Santa Claus Postcard

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and has a white border around all sides. A woman wearing a red Santa coat and hood stands in the center of the postcard. Her auburn hair is seen blowing on either side of her face as she smiles with red lips at the viewer. On her head is the hood from the coat, complete with white fur trim around all of the hems of the coat. She wears an emerald green belt with a gold buckle around her waist, and matching green gloves on either hand. On her back, seen over her left shoulder, is a green bag full of toys. Around her waist and belt is a string of golden bells. In either hand, she holds a brown suitcase, each decorated with stickers. The end of the suitcase in her left hand reads "S. Claus." She wears black boots on both feet, and is seen to have her left foot toeing off behind her. Behind her is a gold decoration. Below her feet it reads "Christmas Greetings" in gold, red, and green script with gold decorations around the wording.
