"Beautiful Christmas tree" illustration from 1903 textbook

This gorgeous color illustration by Paul King is featured in the 1902 textbook "Graded Classics, Third Reader" by M.W. Haliburton and F.T. Norvell.

The illustration accompanies the Hans Christian Andersen story "The Little Match-Seller," which is actually extremely depressing as Christmas stories go. (The little girl dies.)
