From Brück and Sohn (Printers in Meissen, Germany 1793-2018) a charming Advent Calendar depicting Christmas Mail (Weihnachtspost) Victorian times - delivered by horse and buggy. This delightful advent calendar is 10" x 15".
"The Advent Calendar Christmas Mail is an image from an historic wood engraving, hand-colored by Mrs. Dirstey-Werner. Happy hustle and bustle is in front of the house, when the stagecoach comes with the Christmas packages. Carefully selected pictures hide behind the small windows and remind us of childhood when the waiting for Christmas lasted much too long." - Brück and Sohn

After celebrating their anniversary in October 2018 of 225 years, the 7th generation, Annette and Helmut Brück, are now retired and have closed their doors. An era has come to an end.
The Brücks plan to explore the history of their company and offer a small museum and postcard archive which are preserved in Meissen and which is open to the public by appointment.
My Growing Traditions has scavenged where we could and replenished our inventory in hopes of being able to make them available to you as long as possible.
