Title

Children Beg Father Christmas

Description

Father Christmas and two children are featured on the card, rendered in a realistic style. Father Christmas, wearing a dull green robe and fur-lined cap, is seated on a chair with an empty brown bag and a branch in his lap. He's holding the hand of the little boy in his right, and the boy is clinging to his back while and looking to the left with his mouth is open to speak. The little girl stands beside the chair, tugging on his arm. On the floor are apples, a doll, and other discarded presents. The card's background is brownish gray. Faded words are printed across the top.
