Title

"National Santa Claus Series": Ireland

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and has a white background. At the top of the postcard, it reads in all-caps, black script "NATIONAL SANTA CLAUS SERIES." Below this script is a frame made of holly leaves and red holly berries. In the center of the frame on each of the four sides is emerald green ribbon criss-crossing, making an "X." This frame comprises most of the postcard and inside of it is a picture of Santa Claus. The background of this card is solid green. Focused mostly on the right side of the frame is Santa Claus with long white hair and a beard. His upper lip is bare, though he has a closed mouth smile. Out of the left side of his mouth sticks a wooden pipe. On his head sits a white top hat with a black sash.. With red-mittened hands, he clutches the end of a bag of toys over the left side of his chest. He wears a black coat with rolled cuffs and two visible black buttons over his stomach. Aside from the bag of toys over his shoulder, the top of a golden harp is visible. Directly below the frame, reading from left to right, black script reads: "1999," "Copyright 1907 Ullman Mfg. Co., N.Y." Directly in the center, below the frame and in larger script, it reads, "IRELAND." Below this is a larger expanse of white space.
