Description

The baby Jesus sleeps in a manger filled with hay. Rays of light shine on him from above. Two angels stand behind the manger, while a third kneels before Jesus. Two lambs lie beside the manger. Below the illustration is a quotation about the Star of Bethlehem. The back of the card has a handwritten inscription. This card was published by Bouasse-Jeune sometime in the early twentieth century.
