Here are two authentic, antique Christmas postcards.

 

The first features a couple in Colonial garb, hanging holly in celebration of Christmastide. The greeting reads “House all filled with Christmas holly, May you Christmas day be jolly.” This card is signed by the illustrator and the signature reads W.deM. The card is not embossed, has no bends and no creases, and it has no writing. It was never mailed. The corners have typical tiny bumps. It was published by The Fairman Co., whose slogan reads “The Pink of Perfection.” They used a carnation as their logo.

 

The second card was produced by Wolf & Co., and the illustrator was most likely Ellen H. Clapsaddle. This lovely card features a lady dressed in Colonial garb, preparing to hang a green Christmas garland. The greeting reads “A Hearty Yuletide Greeting, All the Season’s Joys.” It is marked Wolf & Co., NY. This card is not embossed, and is in superb condition with typical tiny corner bumps.  It has no bends, no creases, no writing and was never mailed.

These cards will come to you in acid-free sleeves.
