Joy. peace, health and plenty

Description

This unsigned Christmas scene was likely an entry in the 1881 Christmas Card Competition. It sold in 1881 for $3 per set of twelve, and includes a poem by "N.C." on the back. The scene features a mother cat and her two kittens looking towards the roaring fireplace at midnight, likely in anticipation of the arrival of Santa Claus. Outside, the moon peeks over the round scene, and an owl and crows are perched on snowy tree branches.
