Title

Christmas Greetings Father Christmas Postcard

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and has a red robed figure in the center. This man appears to be Father Christmas and he stands with a horn in his left hand and a doll in his right. His red robe has long sleeves and falls to just above his ankles. The robe has a dusting of snow on the shoulders and arms and has a golden cord with tassels tied around his waist. He wears a magenta pointed hat atop his head and wears a white glove on his left hand. His pants are pale blue striped and he wears brown loafers. He has a long white beard and mustache and looks out at the viewer with dark eyes. He stands outside in the snow next to a basket of goodies of some sort, and next to a small evergreen tree with lit candles on its branches. All of this is next to a wooden home where only the window is visible toward the left side of the card. A sort of doorway frames around where the man stands and it runs from the upper portion of the right side of the card and arcs down toward the lower left portion of the postcard. It is a red frame with darker stripes and stars throughout. From behind it peek evergreen branches, ornaments, stars, and candles. The bottom right corner of the card reads "Christmas Greetings" in gold script with flourishes around it.
