Rabbits and Christmas Buns by Beatrix Potter

Merry Christmas and Plenty of Buns
An entirely unknown drawing showing an inventive use of lettering on the jars, bag and label on the set of keys. The message reads: “A Merry Christmas and Plenty of Buns H.B.P.”
Beatrix Potter's full name was Helen Beatrix Potter. Since her mother's name was also Helen, she went by Beatrix.
Fine ink and watercolor drawing heightened with gouache signed lower right [within key label]. Sold at Sotheby's London July 2008 for 42,050 GBP 
Happy Christmas Eve. I'm having dinner with friends. See you on Christmas morning. xo
