Artwork in the public domain because it was first published outside the United States prior to January 1, 1923. Images taken from “Seven Happy Days”, a special 1913 special Christmas supplement that the artist did for “The Studio Magazine, which was issued in loose paper wrappers. This is a small sampling. There are many more grand images that you can find via the various blog links. Enjoy!
