The Wonderful Christmas Tree (1882)

This image of a delightfully busy table-top tree come from a book called “The wonderful Christmas tree!: a story in rhyme”. If you’re familiar with the history of Christmas ornaments, you’ll know that some of the earliest Christmas trees contained miniatures of everyday household objects. Examples from this little tabletop tree include a basket, a jug, and a glove.
