A Gallery of Edwardian Christmas Cards (Part Two)

Continuing from Part One of my Blog, I am pleased to show you a further selection of Edwardian and pre World War One Christmas and New Years Greeting cards. That they have survived close to 100 years is testimony to their beauty and sentimental value. Some were sent from Scottish friends and relatives to my family after emigrating to New Zealand, hence the references to "far away", "remembrance" and "memories".

Most of these cards are chromolithographic prints on a form of opaque plastic material. These are either tied to a card by ribbon or sewed on. Some state "Printed in Bavaria" on the reverse.

Please refer to Part Three in this series (select in right hand menu) for an old audio Christmas greeting !

Enjoy !
