A rare and scarce exquisite piece of history and genealogy. Vintage 1930's Christmas Greeting Card with a poem by Julie Morrow DeForest, of Cincinnati Ohio. Printing process is woodblock I believe, as I do not see any tiny dots to indicate lithograph, but I am NOT 100% sure on exact printing process. The art work may be by Ms. DeForest. She is a listed American Artist and a poet and painter, she is passed on. She was born in New York and moved to Cincinnati, Ohio Inside verse reads " All joy be yours this Christmastide Julie Morrow DeForest Cornelius Wortendyke DeForest. The poem reads: "Radiant angel on that night, Did your trembling heart delight, As you joined the seraph throng, Filling Earth and Heaven with song, peal on peal and tone on tone, Circling o'er the manger throng? By the star's long slanting ray, guiding Magi on their way, Could you penetrate the gloom, to that lowly manger room, hovering low on drooping wing, silent now and wondering, at the grace and tenderness, of tiny arms outstretched to bless ? Did you clasp your hands in prayer to the Savior shining there ? May we too this Christmas Day, Be moved in humbleness to pray. " Condition is a general good with some imperfections. ( an age patina on angel's wing and on rest of card, age patina is not even and a faint striation line on front of card ) and generally clean for the age, with some shelf wear. Card is rare and scarce. Overall size is approximately 4 inches by 6 inches. Card was acquired with other notable cards from the Cincinnati, Ohio.
