Antique embossed, die-cut Christmas card. Date and publisher unknown.
Price: $10.00 Size: About 2 and 1/2 x 2 and 3/4″
This is a beautiful little card of a wooden waterwheel, the water having frozen, showing icicles hanging from the rungs. The details of the wood and ice are gorgeous, not to mention that of the snow-covered lettering with the message: “A hearty Christmas, greeting.” Yes, that appears to be a comma after the word, Christmas. I think they sometimes forgot themselves when making cards….made the mistake and just left it in. The blue background was used for scanning purposes and not part of the card.
