Moving quickly on in my Christmas alphabet – ‘L’ is for Ladies, and you could add ‘P’ for presents or poodle.
The one below does fit the current weather – wrap up warm! The lady does look very cosy in her fur hat, and she lovingly catches snowflakes. Warm feelings guaranteed!
How very fifties! Love the coat, and the poodle. This lady seems to live in a city – no snow-boots needed.
Here’s a trio of very similar looking ladies – I like to imagine they all live in the same place, hurrying home to be able to put the presents under the tree. Although they might not like the fact that their outfits are very similar…
This card is a favourite, not only because the lady is not dressed in the usual style but also for all the little details, and the lovely drawings inside.
Always love a die-cut card, and this is a lovely example. And I could identify the publisher!
Sidney J. Burgoyne, Jr., the founder and owner of Sidney J. Burgoyne & Sons, a greeting card manufacturing company (1907 – 2002). was born in London. He later came to Philadelphia and established his firm there in 1907. The company was one of the first manufacturers to begin large-scale production of Christmas cards in the United States. Since 2002, some of his descendants still produce greeting cards under the name Legacy Greetings.
and finally, a wonderful example in terms of 1970s colouring and font, this card is by Rousana Cards. It seems the company started in 1971 in New Jersey and specialised in cards for ethnic minorities. In 1985 they became part of the Belmont Greeting Card Company, which ceased trading in 1995.
