Christmas and New Year's card, depicting a roaring fire with toys in front of it, 1883

A blazing fire warms a Christmas scene of toys and a cat and kittens around a fireplace hung with stockings. A snow-covered countryside with carolers standing outside a house fills the rest of the image area. Mistletoe borders the card and encircles the central scene.
