A wonderful Victorian advertising Christmas card of Santa and Mrs. Claus sitting in their stuffed arm chairs playing with children, a dog and a cat. It is an unembossed card but highly rich in color and details. The name of the store is Dives, Pomeroy & Stewart and is located at 606, 608, 610, 612 Penn St. Reading Pa. When opened up there are two fantastic Thomas Nast prints of Santa and dated 1883 and 1884. There is a pencil inscription inside, "Lizzie E. Himmelreich". There are three small taped repairs on the inside and a bend on the top of the card with Santa. Overall, a great piece. Additional photos are attached by the magnifying glass icon.
