Black and white, and red all over

This is a really nice set of two-sided ornaments with a lot of detail on the front and back. It’s an odd collection of characters: a pair of formally attired ballroom dancers, an ice skater and a sign painter. I’m trying to imagine a story that would tie them all together. Two dancers and skater came from a visit to Montreal, while the painter came a year later when I was in Rehoboth Beach, Del. It makes me wonder if this might be a series of ornaments with a new design each year.
