Yuletide Greeting

This exquisite little card measures 3 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches. The colors on the blockprint illustration are vivid some 80 years later. The paper is a light brown onionskin, still crisp. Inside, after the greeting, there is a logo of a candle with the initials I.F.C. -- perhaps a guild of artists or printmakers? From the Chester Thorpe scrapbook, c. 1926.
