Fairburn's Twelfth Night Fun

Twelfth Night, January 5th, marks the ending of the traditional Twelve Days of Christmas or the Christmas season - it is time to take down the festive decorations.

Hand coloured Twelfth Night wrapper published by J. Fairburn, 110 Minories, London circa, 1830. The back of the sheet shows the key to the conundrums that are displayed on the front. These items often accompanied a gift of a magnificent Twelfth cake.

Q A sheet of Twelfth Night characters would have been inside the wrapper, has anyone seen an uncut sheet of them?
