A Piper and Two Nutcrackers

I just purchased these medallions from My Shangrila on Etsy. It was the squirrels that originally caught my eye, they were cute and looked so familiar. And then I realized, I own a couple other objects with the same image - A Piper and Two Nutcrackers by Landseer.

Here's my vintage print.

And here's a candy tin from the Squirrel Candy Company.
No wonder they seemed familiar!

I don't have specific plans for the medallions but they have an Arts and Crafts era feel to them, so perhaps I'll go in that direction with them.
