The Merry Christmas Barn

No indication of publishing data. A shaped card barn of silvery wood and red roof surrounded on the front by Holly Berries, with a big double door to open, revealing interior pocket with white horse eating hay next to hanging plow horse collar; on the back a closed door and hay hanging out the windows.; oblong 4.25" x 3", toploader small.

The barn doors invite the viewer to "look inside and you will see all the farmyard folk who bring greetings from me." Inside are six die cut animals, each standing on the grass above its own little Christmas couplet. "The collie will keep you safe from harm/He's the kindest animal on the farm." The six fill the pocket nicely and are undoubtably the original number. A very charming and usual little piece.Beautifully made little card Difficult to date, but the white pony leaning out of the box stall on the pocket is a familiar late 19th c chromolitho.

CONDITION: The roof hinge has split and the neatly applied clear repair tape has too. Otherwise all is As new with no soil, rubs or creases and a very tight front barn door.. We have repaired the roof hinge with German archival tape but it is a fragile design. Item #22902

Price: $55.00
