Santa's Round the World Ride

In this antique postcard, Santa is not making his toy deliveries in a sleigh pulled by tiny reindeer.  Here he makes his round the world ride in a dirigible.

Antique Postcard from my Personal Collection
Made in Germany, Postally Unused


This card is also unique because silk clothing is worn by both Santa and the doll to be delivered to some lucky child.  Actual silk fabric is applied to portions of the postcard.

Our local historical society will be displaying some of my Christmas postcards as part of their holiday display.  The cards that I selected for this year center around the theme of Santa's transportation.  This is one of the cards included in that exhibit.



This forum reveals random thoughts and reflections on topics of interest and events impacting the life of the founder of Doll in the Looking Glass.  Our boutique specializes in custom designed dolls that look like your child. We also design toddler and baby dolls that look real using vinyl doll components manufactured in Midland, Michigan USA by Apple Valley Doll Works.  The goal of Doll in the Looking Glass is to delight our customers with our creations.
