That does not look like a safe place for a child to sit! Today’s lovely Christmas card features a child in blue sitting on a lighted chandelier with ribbons and balsam. Call me a helicopter parent, but that just seems like a very bad combination of things lol.
The card was possibly mailed in 1914, but there is damage to the area where the postal cancellation was made. It was sent to Anna Chodl, and the message is written in another language – possibly Czech according to site visitor Robin. If you can read Czech, please let us know what the card says! It was printed in Germany by Dessin. I find it interesting that the printed text is all in English, rather than in German.
