Elf Feeding a Pig Postcard



Elf Feeding a Pig Postcard


This postcard is oriented vertically and has a white border around all sides, with the thickest part of the border visible at the bottom side. Inside this white frame is an image of a young pig inside a wooden building with a large open doorway. The building has wooden panels in the wall running vertically and the floor is covered in a dark tan colored straw. The open doorway is built into the wall and the entrance has a step up as it is cut out of the wall. The pig stands with its front two hooves on top of this step and looks out the doorway to the snowy scene. Walking in the snow down a hill is a short elf carrying a red bowl of something steaming hot. The elf faces the pig and wears a red hat with a long, rounded point sticking up. He has a white beard and white hair and wears a green coat which flairs at the waist. His pants are tan are tucked into the ends of his red socks. He wears brown shoes with a golden square buckle on the top. Behind him in the distance is a partially visible home--only the roof and upper portion can be seen--which is a tan color with a chimney. Evergreen trees stand tall around the house. In the bottom left corner of the image, the name "Max Hanel" is scripted. Over the top part of the doorway, a red stamp reads "GOD JUL!" and black cursive script was written under this, but is illegible. Additionally, running along the right border near the top, more black script is written.
