3. Illustrated on the front of this charming blue card are three stylized lit candles in a silver holder accents with holly. The border, holly, candle holder and candle flames are printed in silver. "Greetings" is the simple sentiment on the front, and inside is printed:
May all Happiness be yours at Christmas and every day of the New Year
Signed on the interior of the card (because it couldn't be read on the vivid blue) is "Harvey Jr. & Senior, Dot & Loralee Harkness".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ These vintage Christmas cards were rescued from a treasured family scrapbook in Connecticut containing cards from 1939 through 1948 which was literally falling apart.
