4 Christmas Bell Images
Don’t you just love Christmas bells and Christmas Bell Images? Me too. This is a delightful collection of three vintage postcards from the same artist, and an additional Christmas Bell Image from a different artist. They would be fun to print and frame just as they are. Three of the cards have Christmas greenery and the same gold and green leafy border. Each has a greeting in a beautiful Chancery typography. If you are thinking about making a Christmas junk journal, these would be great pockets with a little hand stitching or journaling cards tucked in a pocket.
Vintage Christmas Bell Postcards
The first Christmas Bell image has “Glory to God in the Highest” embossed in the metal. It appears to be bronze and perhaps developing a rustic patina. A spray of dark green pine boughs wrap the large central bell that seems to be ringing. Tiny bright red berries on thin, wispy red branches are mixed in and hanging from the pine needles. The sentiment reads: “A Merry Christmas” in the most lovely lettering in shades of red, green, and gold. All three of the first letters have been hand painted like illuminated manuscript lettering of old. The creamy background is just perfect for showing off the Christmas image.
“May your Christmas be happy” is the sentiment on our second postcard. The type is stunning with an illuminated initial cap. The bronze bell has “NOEL” inscribed between two metal bands that wrap the middle. A spray of white flowers with pink tips and light mint green centers drape around the bell. Bard green leaves and wispy green sprigs are mixed in with the flowers and buds. They look so sweet on the warm cream colored background. I would certainly be happy to receive this postcard with a lovely Christmas Bell image from a friend.
Our final coordinating card has a mistletoe (I believe) spray draped around the beautiful bronze bell. There are little round white berries peeking from lush green leaves. The leaves curl in the most delightsome way. The berries are shaded in green from a reflection of the long, thin leaves. Around the bowl of the bell it says “Goodwill to Men” in embossed metal lettering. Glints of golden specks shine from the bronze metal making it look three dimensional. The greeting reads, “All good Wishes for a Happy Christmas” in the beautiful calligraphy type with the illuminated capital A this time.
