PETERSHAM, Maud & Miska. “Christmas Gathering” Pencil Studies. Two 7 ½” x 4” pencil studies on tissue paper.

Two sketches in pencil hand-captioned by the artist aas “Christmas Gathering from Once-Upon-a-Time.” One sketch is more detailed than the other, indicating the rougher sketch was most likely done first. These delicate sketches show a family gathered around the fireplace exchanging Christmas gifts.
