Christmas cracker illustration 1847

Christmas Crackers

Q This lively drawing from the Illustrated London News, December 25, 1847 appears to be an exploding Christmas cracker.

Is anyone aware of an illustration of Christmas crackers that predates 1847 and is this the first use of the term "Christmas Crackers" ?
