Most Charming Early Lithographed Trade Card from Paris

Antique Trade Card
Most charming early lithographed Trade Card of "J.Flory" - a Lingery and Embrodery store in Paris - card says "Au Nouveau Paris". The card itself has not much to do with Christmas but we just imagine that this lovely picture was created on Christmas eve night. The three children look so happy and peaceful in their nightshirts and the boy brought even his new little Christmas toy along to pose nicely for the picture... if it might be a Dresden carriage pulled by a horse? This is a wonderful lithograph kept in soft decent colors - it would look beautiful in a frame. Please view other images for condition details. Approx. 6.4" x 4.3"

Most likely German (or French) origin

ca. 1880-1890
