Item details

A sweet collection of three vintage Christmas cards from 1939-1940 featuring poinsettias. A fabulous find for mixed media artists!

1. The front of this beautiful 1939 Christmas card boasts three red poinsettias with holly and features die-cut details which allow a gold foil layer to show through. The stock has a lovely moire pattern with a pearlized finish. "Greetings at Christmas" is the sentiment.

On the inside is printed:

Greetings on this day of days,
A wish for Christmas cheer,
And hopes for happy days ahead,
all thru a Glad New Year.

Under the printing is signed "Gertrud P(?)agels."

This card measures 5 1/2" wide x 4 1/2" high. The back panel of the card is missing.

2. Illustrated on the front of this cute 1939 card is a potted poinsettia plant on a windowsill with white stars in the night sky seen through the window panes in the background. The colors, red, white, blue and green, are still beautifully vivid. A simple "Greetings" is on the front.

On the bottom inside panel is printed:

Greetings of the
Yuletide Season,
With best wishes for
Christmas cheer
and New Year happiness

"Helen & Marjorie" is signed below with a fountain pen.

This card measures 4 1/2" wide x 4 " high and has some adhesive remnants and tearing on the back panel. See photos for details.

3. Illustrated on the front of this cute card is a stylized red poinsettia in a pot, The vivid red and jade green of the leaves and pot really pop against the cream and chocolate brown of the background. "Greetings of the Season" is the sentiment on the front. The poinsettia theme is continued on the inside left panel.

On the inside right panel is printed in chocolate brown:

Kindest thoughts
for a Season
filled with JOY
and CHEER!

It's signed "Mrs. Lorenqen & family."

This 1940 card was made in the U.S.A. and measures 4 1/4" wide x 4 1/4 " high and has some adhesive remnants on the back panel. See photos for details.

These vintage Christmas cards were rescued from a treasured family scrapbook containing cards from 1939 through 1948 which was literally falling apart. The back panel of this card is torn off and some adhesive remains on the reverse side. See photos for details.

This collection of three poinsettia Christmas cards will be shipped in a padded envelope from my smoke-free studio. Additional Christmas cards may ship in the same package at no additional charge.
