This is one of 10 Christmas postcards in a series beautifully illustrated in blue-gray, all mailed to Suzanne in Reims, France, in 1900! This one is entitled "The Nativity." But that background scene is upstaged by the beautiful angels up front. Compare this design to Christmas Star: one angel in profile with another's head peeking just enough from behind to see mesmerizing eyes! This card has light album impressions and there is a scratch in the angel's hair, but for its age (franked every so lightly Dec. 10, 1900 verso) this card is in amazingly fine antique condition.
