Tom Smith's cracker verses

Cracker Mottoes

  • Printed verses from Tom Smith’s crackers
  • Early 20th century
  • Bottom motto 102 x 32mm (4 x 1¼in)

These little, endearing Christmas cracker mottoes, featuring chubby cupids, are so refreshingly different from the present day excruciating puns that give rise to groans and guffaws around the dinner table on Christmas Day.
