New Year Blessings

Sending you an overabundance of good wishes for the New Year
as depicted in this postcard artwork.

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

The prominent symbol on this postcard is the guardian angel
to protect and guard you.

The angel is lifting a horseshoe, which is a symbol of good luck.
There are varied viewpoints on which way the opening should be pointed.
Some believe that the shoe must point up or the luck will run out.
Others insist it must point down so the luck can pour onto you.

Next you may notice the four-leaf clover plant on the right.
                                                                  One leaf is for Faith
                                                                  The second for Hope
                                                                  The third for Love
                                                                  And the fourth for Luck

The left side of the card includes bags of gold coins,
a wish for prosperity.

The red-berried holly branch has been regarded as symbolic
of strength, protection, good will and everlasting life. 



I enjoyed sharing this vintage postcard with you.  Please visit again soon,
