Comments:
Grant postcards usually have printed card designs, although it is now believed they also made two variety of embossed ship and Hands Across The Sea postcards.

The first of these variations has been identified from the recorded silk of R.M.S. Caronia {gc408 on this site}. This has the Grant name printed on the card, and has a distinctive embossing around the silk together with an anchor design in each corner with regional variations of the thistle and shamrock.

As the card above has the same distinctive anchor design in each corner of the silk, there can be no doubt this card was made by GRANT.

Note:
As mentioned above, whilst the card mount of this postcard is a genuine Grant, the actual woven silk is identical to that mounted in a Stevens postcard, RMS Tunisian, and it is unknown who woven this actually silk.
