Prang certainly illustrated many kinds of materials, but usually his colors are stronger - intense chromolithographs. But I couldn't say for sure that this isn't Prang. Looks more like a German production perhaps. You might like a book titled American Christmas Cards 1900-1960, by Kenneth L. Ames. It looks critically at Christmas cards from a social-cultural standpoint.
One of the oldest American Christmas cards in my collection is this unknown maker that I found in an album dated 1876. I know that Louis Prang was an early pioneer of lithographed Christmas cards starting his business in 1875 manufacturing the first mass-produced Christmas cards made in America.
Is anyone here familiar with Louis Prang's cards?
