A wonderful old litho health and medical related poster of Santa Claus holding up a child to place a 1921 letter into his bag. The large old Christmas Seal stamp is clearly visible. Christmas Seals were placed on mail during the Christmas season to raise funds and awareness for charitable programs. They are usually associated with lung diseases such as tuberculosis, and child welfare. Started in the US in 1904, these seals are considered a "Cinderella Stamp" in the philatelic antique stamp world.
The children's scene is quite beautiful, and the early Santa very charming with his clearly signed US postal bag. A wonderful antique santa claus collectible in great condition. The poster is archivally linen backed and ready for framing. We only have this one.
