Raphael Tuck & Sons were the main purveyors of Christmas cards during the late 1800's and early 1900's. It is ironic, that the biggest sellers of Christmas were Jewish! The were the primary movers behind the growth of Christmas greetings at the turn of the last century. They primarily designed, printed and sold post cards, but did some other types of cards as well. This is a rare pop-up card by them, dating to around 1890. The card has their information in very tiny gold print at the bottom of the Yuletide Greetings at the bottom of the card. The card has 5 pieces that fold out to form a 3D picture of winter, with a wonderful little girl angel. The card measures 5" tall, and is in excellent condition. It is bright and clean, and stands well on it's own. It has lots of Victorian "scrap" - the embossed die cuts that were sold for girls to paste into scrap books. The card is inscribed on the back. The card is rare, and won't disappoint.
