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.

From the recorded silk R.M.S. Caronia {gc408 on this site} which has the Grant name printed on the card, we know that embossed silks with an anchor design in each corner were made by Grant.

A second feature noted with these "anchor" cards is a secondary rectangular embossing enclosing the whole central design. It is believed this feature is unique to Grant, and it is this feature which has identified the silk postcard above as being of Grant manufacture.
