Welcome Winter, with Children Sledding

December 5th, 2008 · No Comments

Although winter doesn’t officially start until December 22, it’s been abnormally chilly here, with snow flurries and temperatures down to about 15 degrees F. As we sipped hot chocolate, we were reminded of the glee we felt when young and faced with new-fallen snow. A blank canvas upon which to busily build forts, create snowmen, and go sledding. The children in this artist-signed H. B. Griggs postcard remind us of those times.

Artist Signed H. B. Griggs Christmas Postcard with Children Sledding

This Griggs postcard has outstanding graphics and a striking composition. It dates to 1907-1915. Colorful, nicely embossed and gilded, it was from Griggs’ Christmas Series No. 2264 for the Leubrie & Elkus postcard publishing company. Griggs postcards are sometimes signed with the initials H. B. G. Herbert Griggs designed at least 350 holiday postcards.
