Santa Claus With Pipe Postcard New Auburn Minnesota
For your consideration is a nice, early 1900's vintageChristmas post card with an image of Santa Claus smoking a pipe, set against a bronze gold backdrop with the words "May Santa Claus be Good to you" inset in a yellow box. The card is marked on the bottom edge, but the marks are so close to the edge that it is difficult to make out, other than that it was from New York. Overall the card is in excellent condition with only minor fuzzing of the corners, the back is postmarked, but the date is not apparent. There is some correspondance and the card is postmarked to New Auburn, Minnesota. New Auburn is a very small town in Sibley County and had a population of 456 people in the 2010 census. The postcard is in very good condition on the front with some minor fuzzing of the corners.

Whether new or old, those who seek figures and paper goods depicting the bearded old elf don't limit themselves to the contemporary look or American made items.
Some of the most popular Santa collectibles were made in Germany around the turn of the 20th century. Many candy containers and standing figures are referred to as Father Christmas or belsnickle a word of old world origin as noted above. Formed of papier-mâché and decorated with felt, faux fur and detailed trimming, these antique decorations truly reflect the olden image of Kris Kringle.
The items produced for the American market after the 1930s tend to reflect our modern notion of Santa. Vintage St. Nick decorations dating from the '30s, '40s and '50s were crafted from a variety of materials including celluloid and metal. Mechanical wind-up toys made during these decades are great finds today. Even ceramic and stuffed Santas made during the '60s find loving homes with collectors.
The paper goods, or ephemera, that go along with a Santa collection can be just as interesting. Collectors look for old books, games and postcards from all generations to add to their holiday stash. These can range in value from several dollars to several hundred depending on the rarity of the item. Early lithographed game boxes and cards are highly sought today.
