Four vintage Christmas cards Wise Men Magi 1940s 1950s

Four beautiful and sacred vintage Christmas cards in various designs showing versions of the Three Wise Men or Magi helps us rediscover the wonder and mystery of the holiday.

These cards were discovered within a treasure trove of Christmas cards in an estate sale in Hillsboro, Oregon. Someone saved these beautiful cards all these years!

The card images include the Wise Men entering the desert through a cut-out window in the shape of a ethereal white wreath; sparkly metallic silver details on colorful Magi presenting gifts; the Wise Men as an ornament on a Christmas tree shown through a round cut-out covered with clear cellophane; and a surreal and magical view of strange clouds hovering over Bethlehem with the Magi observing. The cards could be from the 1930s to the 1950s.

All the cards have holiday wishes inside, and some on the front as well. They are all signed inside or on the back by the senders. Three of the cards have Bible verses inside.

All cards are in good vintage condition considering they are 60-80 years old. As with most old paper there could be some slight age-related conditions such as some wearing of the edges, bent corner tips or light toning, but there are no major issues. The wreath one has a slight, gentle wrinkle in it and the ornament one has a tiny tear near the cellophane cut out. Neither issue detracts from the design. The colors are still rich and bright when they should be, and subtle and pastel when they should be. They vary in size but are on the small side.

There are no envelopes included but they shouldn't be hard to find ones that would work at the craft store or online if you want to resend them as cards. They would also be beautiful framed, displayed as in the photos, used in scrapbooking or incorporated into art projects.

If you'd like to see the inside of the cards, email me and I can send you photos of them.

There is no Christmas like a vintage Christmas!

I am a fast shipper! Your cards will be sent in a plastic sleeve along with a lightweight piece of cardboard to help protect them from bending. I'll include three vintage book page gift tags inside as well.
