About this Item

An original ink and water-colour design for Jessie King and E.A. Taylor's Christmas greeting card. 9cm x 12cm. On the back of the card is an alternative design sketched in black ink. In very good condition, small pin puncture to one corner and light mark to lower left hand side. No fading to the water-colour. The design with features an elfin figure in a bluebell wood is reminiscent of the designs that Jessie painted on pottery of the same era. "Greetings cards were always treated with great importance at Greengate. In 1929 Jessie had designed the first in a long series of Christmas and New Year cards for their own use." [Colin White, The Enchanted World of Jessie M. King] This drawing for the 1949 card was to be one of her final card designs, as in July of that year Jessie suffered from a heart attack and died on 3rd August. Bookseller Inventory # 31854
