Reward of Merit card featuring a girl under an umbrella

This old "Reward of Merit" card features a young girl sitting underneath an umbrella and (possibly) whistling at the birds as a light snow falls.

I thought, at first, that she might be sitting under a dogwood or hawthorn tree that is shedding its spring blossoms. But it's almost certainly snow. The ground is covered in white stuff and she has a basket with holly branches by her side.

It's a cute little card, measuring about 4 inches by 2¾ inches.

The only thing written on the back, in cursive, is: "For dear Johny from Papa."
