    This is a 19th century New Year's Album Card with a Girl in Foreign Dress.  The lithographed card, measuring 7.375" high by 2.75" wide, shows a young girl standing beneath three lanky trees on a country path.  She is wearing foreign clothing, including a white blouse with billowy sleeves and a high ruffled collar; yellow skirt with hem trim; white apron; red vest; yellow and white bonnet; red slip-on shoes with blue socks; and a black draw string bag with a long cord.  She has dark hair and a sweet smile on her red bowed lips, as she stares off to the side.  She is carrying an empty wood bowl with a handle.  The front reads "May yours be a Happy New Year" and the back has a rhyming poem with hopes for the new year.  Maker of the card and country of origin of the clothing are unknown.  This 19th century New Year's Album Card with a Girl in Foreign Dress is in very good condition.  The front has no wear or damage.  The back has some minor staining.
