The mantel clock reads just past midnight as the family’s Christmas stockings wait to be filled. This vintage Christmas image looks surprisingly like much of today’s clip art. Whether you are looking for a modern or period Christmas image, this Christmas Stockings image might be exactly what you need for a holiday image that is a bit more on the subtle side.
This vintage Christmas image was drawn by the artist Jessie Wilcox Smith (1863-1935). It appeared in the 1912 work Twas the Night Before Christmas.
