The Trollope Society’s new set of Christmas cards, notelets and postcards celebrates the partnership between Trollope and Millais and features a selection of Millais’ most beautiful illustrations.

Pack of 10 Christmas cards with envelopes featuring two illustrations by Sir John Everett Millais from Anthony Trollope’s Orley Farm – ‘Christmas at Noningsby – Morning’, and ‘Christmas at Noningsby – Evening’.

Two Christmas illustrations from Orley Farm, the first showing Noningsby Church on Christmas morning.

It so fell out, as they started, that Graham found himself walking at Miss Staveley’s side, to the great disgust, no doubt, of half a dozen other aspirants for that honour.

The second shows a game of blindman’s buff played in the afternoon.

Marian Arbuthnot was not the only soft little laughing darling that wished to be caught, and blinded, so that there was great pulling at the blindman’s tails, and much grasping at his outstretched arms before the desired object was attained.

‘Christmas at Noningsby – Morning’ and ‘Christmas at Noningsby – Evening’

Illustration by Sir John Everett Millais
