Victorian pop-up Christmas card

Three-dimensional Christmas card depicting a rigged sailing ship (the name on its hull reads, “FORTUNA”).  Two flaps (one resembling a dock) fold outward to form a base for the fully-extended ship and its three-dimensional deck and hull.  The words, “A Merry Christmas!” are printed on the dock flap.   Printed circa 1880.
