Description
Christmas cards reproducing 19th and 20th century illustrations of the Royal Christmas. Queen Victoria's (1819-1901) reign cemented many of the customs still cherished today as part and parcel of the Christmas season. It was the syndication of engravings and images in newspapers and periodicals of the time which caught the public's imagination when they first saw images capturing Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's family celebrations with the unusual centrepiece of a candlelit Christmas tree in the 1840s. Christmas trees soon became a fashionable and then, much-loved, tradition thereafter. Includes a tinted engraving from 1897, after James Roberts's 1850 painting 'Queen Victoria's Christmas tree at Windsor Castle'; an engraving from ‘The Illustrated London News’, 1848; and detail from a cartoon by Tom Merry, imagining 'Queen Victoria's Christmas: A Vision', published in the 'St Stephen's Review', December 1886; plus an illustration c.1900-1910 by Alan Wright (1864-1959).

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
