Holly & Mistletoe Cards

Reproducing original Christmas and New Year cards c.1890s by Marcus Ward & Co.; a Belfast publisher who, from the 1860s, became highly regarded for their fine-quality greetings cards. Gleeson White, writing in 1894, noted: ‘here is a house, one of the earliest in production, with a record that reaches the highest level of decorative excellence ever touched by the Christmas card’. Recalling Gothic script, the illuminated-style lettering was a typical design element of the Company’s designs; the verses read: ‘Fair Mistletoe! Love's opportunity! What trees that grow Give such sweet Impunity? With Christmas Greeting’; and ‘Bright berries in the gloomy green! To every soul that lives Some bright hopes glow their griefs between, When God the New Year gives! With best wishes for the New Year’.

2 designs, printed ‘Season’s Greetings’.
6” x 5”.
Produced exclusively for Museum Selection.
