Three Unused Christmas Greeting Cards - Holland Theme
click for more pictures for item Misc100
These three cute Christmas cards were never sent. They were printed by Gibson Lines of Cincinnati and New York.
The first card shows a cute Dutch girl who has slipped on the ice, leaving her packages scattered all over the ice. The simple message, "Mine Christmas Vishes!"
The second card shows a happy Dutch boy carrying armloads of packages and reads, "A cholly goot vish for Xmas."
The third card shows a Dutch boy with a holiday package. A shy girl anticipates the gift is for her. The card reads, "Der Gombliments of der Season!"
There is no date on the cards, but they were in a lot of cards that were dated from 1916 to 1925. From the graphics I believe them to be from that period.
Both cards are in very good condition with minimal wear to the outer edges. They are printed on a nice, heavy card stock with blue marbling in a random pattern throughout the card. The Dutch Boy card does have some light small stains in several places on the card front.
The interiors of both cards are blank with a "To" and "From" line on the inside. All cards have the same brand mark on the back side from the Gibson Line.
These cards are dear reminders of simpler times!
