Object of the month
Husqvarna Ltd Christmas Card, ca 1948.
The item this month has an obvious touch of the season! This x-mas card was used by the Husqvarna company around 1948 when Thure Öberg was CEO and Stig Tham still his deputy. The text says: Vi önska Er och Er familj en GOD JUL (”We wish you and your family a MERRY CHRISTMAS”).
It is not known for certain to whom this card was aimed but the text seems to indicate that at least the employees received this managerial Christmas greeting.
The card is illustrated with drawings of gingerbread men – with hard icing to make them more easily understood! – depicting different trades at Husqvarna: a wood worker, a foundry man, an engineer, a bicycle worker, an assistant and a driller. Included is also the crowned logotype of HVA.
A truly delicious Christmas card!
