Three Rabbits Eating Plenty of Buns by Beatrix Potter, painted in the early to mid 1890s.
A delightful painting of three bunnies eating, yes, plenty of buns! I love her ingenious use of lettering which spells out the message "Merry Christmas and Plenty of Buns." And liking good puns the way I do, I also love the play on words (buns like you eat and "buns" as a short form of "bunnies"). Beatrix Potter normally signed her works with her three initials in the lower right corner, but she continued the playful use of lettering in this particular painting and placed them on the key ring tag instead, which I find quite charming.
Wonderful as an art tile, you may also frame it into a trivet (you can easily hang the trivet on the wall when it's not in use. A charming way to bring a little Christmas into the kitchen.
