Christmas Boxes
We have more collectors of Christmas pieces than any other style or theme. I'm not sure if it's because they have the widest appeal or if its simply the joy of giving carried to a new level . In any case they are always an anticipated release and these first offerings from Bilston and Battersea justify the wait.

How fitting that Bilston and Battersea should start their own series of Pooh boxes with one of my favorites
Inscribed inside it features one of Poohs poems, one that I learned quite easiily as a child as it had the appeal of sound that a child loves.
'The more it Snows
Tiddly-pom
The More it Goes
Tiddly Pom
The More it Goes
Tiddly Pom
On Snowing'
You probably learned it just in the one reading.
Box is 2 1/4 inches across

First Christmas Tree

The royal family in Victorian England made the Christmas Tree popular.
As the inscription says:
'It was Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria who made Christmas Tree fashionable in England. The first tree, displayed at Windsor Castle in 1841, was decorated with candles and a variety of fruits, sweets and gingerbreads.'
Albert had brought his families tradition from Germany which so many of us now enjoy and he and his family were depicted in the newspapers with their tree. Quickly copied it became the rage
Box is 1 3/4 inches across
