Set of 2 Used Vintage Christmas Cards 1940, Die Cut, Log Cabin, Child's Card, Puppy, Mouse, Elephant, Duck, pre WWII era, Not Reproductions

Two fun finds for mixed media artists and scrapbookers!

1. The front of this adorable 1940 child's die-cut Christmas card show a puppy, mouse, duck and elephant popping out of a tissue-lined gift box, with the die-cut surrounding the figures. Opened, a mouse tying a bow on a red and white candy cane is on the left panel, and on the right is printed:

When Christmas comes
I hope you may
Have just the nicest time all day,
And that you're
happy as can be
With the things Santa
left 'round your tree!

On the back is written in pencil "CHARLIE" by a child, and in an adult hand, "Borrmann". This card measures 4 1/4" high by 3 1/2" wide and has remnants of the original scrapbook page from which it was removed.


2. This 1940 card has the look of a "colorized" black and white photograph of a snow-covered log cabin nestled in the woods. When the card is opened, the die-cut follows the outline of the tree line and reveals a meandering stream inside the card.

Printed is:
Best Wishes
for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

It's signed in fountain pen, "Margaret & Alfred Carrington". This card is 4 3/4" wide x 3 3/4" high. Printed on the back panel is, "created by Paramount" and "made in U.S.A.". This card has remnants of the original scrapbook page from which it was removed.

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

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