Holiday paper goods from the Winterthur collection



Caspari has a new line of paper goods inspired by artwork in the Winterthur collection. Items include napkins, plates and greeting cards. In the Victorian era, trade cards served as advertisements that were often collected and pasted into scrapbooks. The turkey is inspired by a lithographed trade card in the Thelma Seeds Mendsen Collection housed in the Winterthur Library.


Serenading angels framed in gold are among the Christmas images on lithographed greeting cards in the John and Carolyn Grossman Collection housed in the Winterthur library. In the second half of the 1800s, the new art of chromolithography brought a vividness to paper objects enjoyed by people of all ages.
