Pip pip – we’re image of the week!

Those Victorians had some very funny ideas when it came to designing Christmas cards. Our selection of vintage Christmas e-cards, featuring cards from our decorative art collection, include crickets playing cricket and food racing on pigback, as well as the more common snowy scenes and Father Christmas.

A century later these more unusual designs still appear to be striking a chord though. I was really chuffed to see that the ‘Pip pip’ e-card (with that festive favourite image of a policeman narrowly avoiding being run over) was the image of the week in The Times on Saturday. You can’t beat the classics!
