Here's a nice card that after looking at closely I see the dresses the little girls are wearing are made of cloth or knitted and then pasted onto the card.
Difficult to see from the pictures but there's quite a few places where they used glitter also even the "Christmas Greetings" is in Glitter.
I've looked everywhere but was unable to determine the maker from the markings on the reverse.
Does this marking look familiar to anyone?
Any idea as to the age or the printing date?
And finally Is there a safe way of removing the ugly tape residue on the back?

Cheers, Bill

Very nice.

I am especially fond of the (almost exclusively) Spanish post cards that could double as embroidery samplers.

In the name of aesthetics, take some White Out and cover the glue stains.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wite-Out

Some day, some archivist will remove the White Out, curse you and the day you were born and, then, cover the glue stains with something else.

Cheers,

May be able to remove some of the glue stain with nail polish remover and a q-tip.

Very nice, interesting card, with the fabric and embossing.

Personally, I wouldn't put solvent the card...considering the fabric on the picture side.

I am puzzled by what is going on here. Assuming that the girl is carving food, what is it? I looked at front and back to see if there are wings, legs, or stumps of legs...but there don't appear to be any.

Also, I have either lived at, or visited a good portion of the USA, and I have never heard of any food being garnished with holly.

The Card has been produced in Germany.
Holly is / was a staple decoration for Christmas meals in Great Britain.
Perhaps Germany was similar.

"The Holly and the Ivy" 1818

Suggestion: The image is of 2 children cutting a traditional "Christmas Pudding"

My Mom would make pudding just like that, and put Pennies in the mix
which was a great delight for kids to find one, not so good if you bit into one.
but of course you would search your pudding first.

Appreciate the help and comment from everyone.
wannahocalugie, I had been to that site but I can't find the logo used on this postcard.
Interesting they say the AMB logo was apparently used prior to the AMAG logo which was adopted in 1909.
With the divided back it apparently was printed 1907 or later, could this indicate it was either 1907 or 1908?

Again thanks to all
Cheers, Bill

Indeed, using scale (Halfway up the door) I'd suggest that is going to be some indigestion for the young ladies.
Perhaps turn of the century "cut and paste" to create the card, scale not entertained.

Period: I'd tend towards a later date, the young lasses appear to have "drop waist" dresses, I associate that with the 1920's

The drop-waist dress is a classic style, often associated with the 1920s. These dresses are relaxed and comfortable but work best on specific body types. Drop-waist dresses typically fit loosely from shoulder to hip, transitioning into a pleated or gathered skirt at the hip, rather than the natural waistline.
