Two mice in a coconut Christmas card



Shaped chromolithograph Christmas card, text on verso reads 
'With best wishes for a Bright and Happy Christmas'. Designed in England, 
printed in Germany, ca.1890. Beatrix Potter's original design for this Christmas 
card depicted a mouse in a nest rather than a coconut. LB1782 and 1787 in the 
V&A are her original watercolour designs, the former depicting the mouse 
inside the nest, and the latter depicting the nest viewed from the outside.
