A Robin (or two) for Christmas..

ROBIN

Robins have been associated with Christmas Greeting since the Victorians created Christmas Cards. 

Here are two Victorian Cards from my small collection

VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS CARD

Victorian-Robin

Both cards were published by Raphael Tuck & Sons.  Based in London they also had  Bavarian Print Works and a wide European connection . 

The top card is the oldest dated to about 1885,  the second more ornate production dates to about 1910 and now showing signs of its age.

But here in the Spirit of the Season is a Christmas Robin .. Just For You
