Letterpress Georgian Vignette Christmas Card
"Star - Fir Tree - Partridge - Shepherd"
Enjoy these folklorish vignettes, what we call miscellanies, because they depict anything and everything - popular snippets of everyday life in 18 century England.
This particular design is a medley of soft references to traditional symbols of Christmas. The Star of Bethlehem, the fir tree, a germanic lutheran influence , the partridge from the Twelve days of Christmas carol, and of course the shepherds who saw the angels announcing the birth of Jesus...
To accompany an envelope to match featuring a cleverly perched character as if hanging off a swing on the flap in a trompe-l'œil manner.
