Christmas Postcard of the Day : The Nativity

Merry Christmas! This is my last Christmas postcard post and I decided to feature a lovely religious postcard. It was published by Sborgi and is a "mechanical" postcard. The card has two panels that when closed, show the work of Fra Filippi Lippi (1400's) "The Archangel Gabriel at the Annunciation". When the panels are opened, they frame another Lippi work "The Adoration of the Magi" - the back of the panels serve as a calendar for the year 1910. The colors are gorgeous!
