50s Santa POPUP Vintage Card

Large vintage Christmas card [9″ X 13″ closed].
Santa’s face on the front; pull down the tip of his beard to change facial expression.
The back shows images of toys and holiday items around a blank “letter” ready to be filled.
As you open the giant card, a holiday scene pops up: Santa’s sled at the front, a Christmas tree, carolers in front of the house and Santa with the toys sack.
Made in Czechoslovakia by Kubarta.

  1. MrCachet,I think it's from the 50's, and it's really not in good conditions: the photos amazingly make it appear better than in reality. There is a lot of yellowing [almost brown!] and age wear, plus the tip of the beard is missing, torn off [too much pulling!!!].I remember these types of cards from when I was little and lived in Italy.The card was donated to our charity organization, like all the items posted on this blog.

  2. I remember pop-ups from when I was a child. I loved playing with them, but unfortunately the wear and tear was too much for them! Great card!
